F100 Finance or Sales & Trading

I am fully aware these are two VERY different fields, however, with two offers I need help deciding. For a brief background, I am from a semi-target with a 3.9 GPA and F500 two corp. finance internships starting after my freshman year. I have had interviews with 6 BB banks and 11 MM banks, however, even after super days did not receive any IBD offers. My goal is to be in IBD or PE post-grad in spring 2019. Which internship will align me to reach my goal?

Also, I would like to hear any input on Texas vs. NYC as the offers are very different in compensation, but the cost of living is most likely much better in Texas. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

Also, I will add the f100 internship would be in the Dallas area and the Sales & Trading internship is with a BB international bank.
