Summer Internship Advice

I am recruiting for SA 2023 and just finished my second year at a non target. I am considering my options for this summer and wanted some advice. I have an offer from a boutique advisory firm in Arizona (pretty lean and mainly sell-side m&a, kinda local firm) and from a firm (non-banking) as an M&A analyst. The second firm (much bigger than the first firm) is expanding, and my role would be similar to banking, not the same though. Should I go with the banking experience or the second firm (related but not banking) with a bigger name? I'm also an international Asian (Idk why just putting it out there lol).
