Finance major recommendations (undergrad & MBA)

Hi! My name is Brooke and I am currently attending a community college in Maryland majoring in Finance with the hopes of transferring to a top finance school in Spring 2018. There's one problem, I don't know what university I want to attend. I'm not posting on this form for lectures about student loans and how I should stick to an instate school. There's a couple of universities I am looking at as of right now; Ohio State, Mississippi State, and University of Maryland. As you can tell, there's a good variety here, Ohio State having a top ranked finance program, Mississippi State having an accelerated MBA program, and then there's my instate option which is UMD. I guess what i'm trying to get insight on is if I should attend the school with top finance program rankings (Ohio) and have more opportunities for a good internship junior and senior year, or settle for Mississippi State or UMD (both about the same price after scholarships) and spend more money on an MBA from a good school. I also have another question, should I spend more money on a undergrad degree or a MBA? And, do companies actually look at where your undergrad degree is from? I am very interested in Investment Banking if that helps.
