Should I go to Bentley as a CIS major (and pay $40k tuition) or stick with VA Tech BIT-DSS/Cyber?

I live in NoVA, so Tech would be cheaper (and pamplin is higher ranked for biz than bentley according to niche - #46 vs. #71), but the BIT curriculum has less coding than Bentley CIS and lower starting salaries. Posters on VA Tech reddit are also saying that BIT will be out of demand by 2025-2027. I believe that coding will get me better jobs too. Should I risk it, save money and go to Pamplin, or should I go to MA and stick with bentley? Thanks.

Eng/CS isn't really for me (maybe Software is. I did AP CS A/Principles, loved it and got a 5 on the exams. Theory sucks.), and even CMDA seems as difficult as CS at tech.

    I was also considering UW Madison, USF-Tampa, JMU, UT Austin, UGA and U Tampa's InfoSystems programs, and the RBS-NB BAIT program too. U Tampa and JMU are ABET accredited, but are ranked far far below these other biz programs. Basically I want to study a reputed business-technology type program, and 2 business technology programs that have stood out to me include the U Miami and U Notre Dame BizTech programs. They're a bit expensive and far though. Temple Fox SSDA was also attractive, but Temple biz is not in the league of these other schools.
