I agree with kingfalcon. Look at the recruiting at both schools to see what firms interest you. Rady has a decent analytics recruiting, especially in the bio tech/medical areas, but overall UCLA would also recruit very well there and will likely give you more options later on down the road in terms of alumni outreach and switching jobs/careers.

Let me throw my 2 cents to it. There is very less probability that UCSD would be able to get you to places other than San Diego. UCLA is a bigger brand overall and should be able to get you where UCSD would get you definitely. Also I think the positions you would get out of UCLA could be higher up in the management in the same firms. For example Qualcomm could hire both at UCLA and UCSD but you might end up in product development v.s a less coveted role (Product management etc) from UCSD. I know that you would be away from your fiancee for almost 18-20 months , but if you are able to somehow balance that through weekend visits - I would say UCLA would be the perfect choice. I would also suggest to look at this aspect - Do you want to be a top performer at an average school or a average performer at a top school. Your network would be far more superior at UCLA than at UCSD.

As someone from the midwest who briefly lived in CA, UCLA is going to have national name value. UCSD is a lot more regional. If it were another top 50 program, it would probably be closer, but as you arent sure long term what you want to do, UCLA probably gives you more options. Also, assuming your fiance isnt taking on a ton of debt, you should be able to pay off the loans from the better school faster.
