Would you rather take a full ride for a MBA at UNC Kenan Flagler, or go to NYU Stern or UVA Darden for the full cost?

UVA, you'll have the same consulting/banking opportunities as Stern, and a FAR lower COL. UNC isn't a bad school, but you'll have an uphill battle getting into the best firms

That being said, I'd say UVA over Stern unless you wanna go into finance. Stern has the advantage of being in NYC, thus having a ton of part-time and full-time alumni who work in finance.

Yes, the difference in top 10 vs the rest is dramatic

Stern.

PWC, not when you include opportunity cost. If you leave at 100k, that's 200k opportunity. NYU is around 200k all in so it costs ~200k more. However, you'll start off post MBA at maybe $110 from UNC and $140 from. So the question is: would you give up $200k for a $10k/year increase or $400k for a 40k increase + stronger network?

Are UNC opps that much lower than Darden or Stern?

UVA > Stern unless you want finance/IB. UNC full ride is tempting but there is a significant difference in recruiting outside the top 15
