Hoping you all can weigh in as i'm very torn!

I was recently accepted into UCLA Anderson, no scholarship. I was very worried about incurring $130k+ of debt when I received the very tempting half-ride scholarship from USC. I have also applied to Haas but have no heard back so I assume a dinge. I was waitlisted from NYU.

My post-grad goals are to work in technology and/or media & entertainment space in California. I am an international student so I will have to overcome visa hurdles (generally only large firms are willing to sponsor).
I have visited both schools, I really liked UCLA but didn't spend enough time at USC Marshall to really form an opinion. I have heard some negative things about Marshall that leave me underwhelmed (commuter school, not so great area of LA etc).

My questions:

1. UCLA is by no means ultra elite. Do rankings matter much aside from the top 10 schools? Ie: should I be bothered that USC ranks substantially lower, or forget the rankings and take the scholarship?
2. Should I say no to both and try again for Haas, NYU or Columbia next year?

and of course, what would you do if you were in my shoes?

Any thoughts at all would be very appreciated!

Thank you all and happy new year!
