I’m narrowing down my choices for grad school and it’s exciting yet nerve racking. Which would you recommend for a tech specialized MBA between UCLA & UCBerkeley?

At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project.
