Which MBA program is better, Liberty or Walden?

I am contemplating whether or not to enroll in an online MBA program. I am on the last term of my undergraduate degree and will be done on October 15th:) I am doing Liberty University's online program and will have a BS of Multi-Disciplinary Studies with cognates in Business and Psychology. I am weighing out whether to stick with Liberty and pursue their MBA program or to enroll in Walden for theirs. It seems impossible to find unbiased ratings online to adequately compare the two. Is there a significant prestige difference between them? Would earnings potential be higher at one over the other? Am I making a mistake all together in going for it online? I have a full-time job and soon to be two children that take up a lot of my time, so the online format is very helpful for my lifestyle. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post. I appreciate any relevant insights or experiences that you could share. Have a great day!
