Have you been offered a position in both programs?

You can't go wrong either way, just depends on where your interests lie. Personally I would take the Goldman Asset Management internship. I feel like it would be more interesting and perhaps you can get more out of it.

I am sure other people on this site that have attended either of the programs will be more helpful.

What are your end goals, and what do you want to do once you graduate? That's the most important consideration and you haven't provided any info....if you want to do AM type work, GS is a no-brainer. Similarly, if you want IB, JP is a no-brainer...

Don't be naive/ignorant enough to think the brand name matters in this scenario - both are top brands and so you have the luxury of picking solely based on work.

@"notthehospitalER" Sorry forgot to clarify. As of right now I believe I want AM to be the end game. Obviously GSAM is no PIMCO, Wellington, Third Avenue, etc. So I was just wondering if I'm looking to move over to top AM shops later on where it would be better start out.

I would personally take GS AM if you want to be in AM and probably JPM IB if you want to be at a HF. I know people at Third Ave type shops and (in my experience, may not be universal) those kinds of places seem to prefer hiring from other mutual funds/AM places where people invest, whereas HFs seem to hire from IB for their reasons.
