Parsons vs University of Michigan Stamps transfer

I’m a community college transfer student who has narrowed down my college search between 2 schools: Parsons and UM Stamps. I’d love to hear from anyone with insight or experience with these schools!!!
Parson’s covered most of my tuition with scholarships, and at University of Michigan I would be a Stamps Scholar. Due to scholarships/aid both schools are the same cost for me.
At Parsons I would be a communication design major w/ a fine arts minor, while Stamps has a more open curriculum with no specific major. Both schools are ranked well, but when it comes to art/design Parsons seems to be ranked higher/has a more famous name in the art world. (Please feel free to collect me if I’m wrong, that’s just what I’ve assumed based on my research.)
My plan is to take enough classes so that I can work as a graphic designer for job security when I graduate, while still being able to take fine art classes. I feel like Stamps open curriculum intrigues me, but Parsons would be a better location for internships/job opportunities and it’s closer to home. However, Umich would offer a more traditional college experience.
Both schools also accepted most of my credits so I would be able to graduate in 2 or 2 1/2 years. I could honestly see myself at both schools and would love to hear any feedback from any students or parents who have had experiences with these schools!
