Need help choosing between 3 programs

When I set out to find an MBA program, I really only had a few criteria. I needed AACSB accreditation and I needed it to be sub 30k or pretty close. I’ve narrowed it down to the following online programs, but need input and opinions to help me decide:
-Colorado State
-Ohio University
-Texas A&M-Commerce

I’ve been accepted to all three, but I’m having a hard time deciding on them. None of them are necesarily “ranked” business schools and I am ok with that, but I would like some brand recognition if possible.

I don’t like that Colorado State’s program is removed from the Fort Collins campus and administered through a “Global Campus”, so that leaves it dead last on my last. Texas A&M-Commerce is the most cost effective, but arguable Ohio University is a much more well known school for it’s research. I’m just looking for input and opinions from you all.
