I am trying to find out which one has better reputation generally as well as business-school wise.

Do you know where you plan to live or what you want to study? Sometimes it is worth considering those things because reputations can be "local". But, in general, I believe Kelley has the better reputation.

My goal is to make MBA applicants take onus over their process.

I hope to get some of the opinions on my situation...

I was just accepted to Penn State. A month ago I got an offer from Edinburgh Uni Business School. I really wanted the UK programme, but have nothing against Penn State programme either. ))
Moreover, Penn State gives me 100% tuition fee waiver AND a small scholarship. Which means that I can graduate from a good programme with zero debt... Which is kind of appealing

Any intakes on Smeal then?
