JPM summer analyst vs Barclays trading graduate

Received offers to join a rotational JPM summer internship in trading as well as another offer to be a graduate FX trader at Barclays. The two overlap with each other and the starting dates are not flexible. Would appreciate any insights in making the decision. Personally biased towards JPM (yes because of prestigiousness, i.e., if I happen to quit finance and go for other roles, ex-JPM > ex-Barclays). Have two top 10 HF internship experiences, so worst case would be having JPM on top of my CV and go back to the recruiting cycle during my gap year/master.
