Need help finding an MBA program with an IS / IT specialty.

I'm looking at MBA programs in Chicago, Cleveland, and St. Louis. I'm interested in specializing in Information Systems, but I've noticed that many schools in the top tier don't offer an IS specialty. My main question is: what top-25 schools in those metro areas offer an MBA with a specialization in IS (or a similar specialization)? Are there programs outside of those metro areas I should really consider? And what pretty-good programs exist in those places? But I'm also wondering why IS is not an offering at more top schools. There are a few concentrations that most schools offer such as finance and marketing. Is Information Systems not as prestigious as other concentrations? Is it considered less of a strategic area?

Transfer from a so-so undergrad history program or finish with a 4.0: the grad school prospects.

I'm going to be graduating from a small 'top 25 private university in the West', not the best, not terrible, with a 4.0. I'm interested in pursuing History as a career and want to get into a great Ph.d program. (Interests include American, Post-Modern, historiography, historical memory.) Recently, I've considered transferring to a top private university with more prestige: will this benefit me in the application process or will my glowing recommendations, independent research and grades equally impress from my middle tier school? At this point, it seems like a gamble either way. [more inside]
