Got into both with a full-ride
Interested in consulting short-term and the pharmaceutical industry long-term post-MBA
Seems like cost of living and quality of life is better at UNC
Johnson might be slightly better for consulting and UNC slightly better for healthcare
Willing to work anywhere on the east coast post-MBA
Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill might have better job prospects for my significant other

Any advice or opinions? Thanks for the help.

Tough choice...I think you have things sketched out pretty good. Johnson probably better career options but quality of life will be much better at UNC especially considering your wife. I would go KF here

Congratulations, both schools are greats.
I would choose UNC, because the cost of living and career opportunities for healthcare sector.

Cornell is a great school so is UNC. Just don't know if there are realistically any opportunities for your significant other in Ithaca. KF will have great opportunities in your industry and also better quality of life for your situation.

I cast my vote for UNC here. For healthcare UNC is definitely the stronger program. Regarding consulting opportunities I think it is more or less equal between these two schools. I am sure your significant other will probably be happier at UNC as well given the greater career and other opportunities in the area.

That being said -- I think a strong case could be made for Cornell if for some reason you both would prefer living in the Northeast post-MBA. Seeing from your currently living in CA though, I have a sneaking suspicion you might prefer a more moderate climate.
