I'm confused between four colleges to admit, They all are equal in admission requirements and cost, the only why to deiced is by picking the best town of them, they are:

1. Shreveport, LA -- LSUS
2. Ashland, OR -- SOU
3. Cheney, WA -- EWU
4. Kearney, NE -- UNK

Facts:
1. I hate cold long winter.
2. As graduate MBA student I'll be looking for part-time jobs.
3. Most of my time will be on-campus (Full-time), fun places is not necessary.
4. I live for soccer.

What is the best city/University under these facts?
Please help!

Go to the one that's in the area where you want to work after graduation. You want to work in Oregon, go to SOU...etc, etc.

None of your schools are top MBA programs, so you can forget about going to UNK and then getting a job on Wall Street or Silicon Valley.

If you don't want long, cold winters you can rule out Ashland and Kearney.

Soccer is gaining in popularity in this country, but it is not really that big of a sport despite the fact that many suburban kids play the sport. If you 'live' for soccer, you will probably be bummed out where ever you go.

He can also rule out Cheney. If he wants to avoid long winters, Shreveport is the only place to go.

Why not consider which one has the best program for your degree? Or is that part of "they all are equal in admission requirements and cost" portion?

I would assume they all have his major if he's interested in all of them.

That wasn't what I was saying. My point was - which school has a better program for their major. If the major is equally represented at each college, fine. However, I would ensure such a thing first and base my decision off of whose program is the best.

Out of curiosity, why are you willing to spend $35k on an unranked program?

Quick and easy almost never equates to the best solution.
