Two splits
1) Among vs between
2) one vs you
for indefinite subject oindefininte pronoun one is correct. you is a definite pronoun and its antecedent must be present in oderr to
use "you" as a pronoun but here in the above sentence there is no antecedent of you.
Among is used when we have more than two options available but between is used only when we have two choices.
with this much of understanding let's check the answer choices

A)Incorrect When choosing among various business schools, you should.

Wrong for the reason stated above
B)Incorrect When choosing between various business schools, you should
Wrong for the reason stated above

C)Incorrect When choosing between various business schools, one should
Wrong for the reason stated above

D) CorrectWhen choosing among various business schools, one should

E)Incorrect When choosing between various business schools, it's a good idea to
Wrong for the reason stated above
"it's" is also wrong. because after modifying phrase we need the entity that is modified.
Hence D
