FT Offer - Return to boutique or T2?

After striking out for MBB, I am trying to decide between two offers: returning FT to the specialized boutique I interned at (think Putnam Associates, Altman Solon, Alix Partners, A&M) or a T2 (LEK, OW, S&, EYP). I really enjoyed my summer internship and the culture of the boutique, but would also prefer a generalist model and would aim to lateral to MBB at some point in the future. Total comp is also a bit higher at the boutique as an additional data point. Given this info, which offer should I choose?
