BB or Consultant

First time posting.

I am currently deciding between two offers, and could use some unbiased opinions. One is for Booz Allen Hamilton, doing government consulting work, and the other is for a BB (BAML, Citi, CS) as a desk strategist.

BAH is in my hometown (a fairly major US city), where I could live at one of my parents' homes and bank almost all of my money.

The BB is in New York/London, and is for slightly more money, but I would spend almost all of it throughout the year on rent/food/transportation/etc.

Either way, I want to go back to b-school in a few years, and will probably have more money saved through working for BAH (I could probably pay back all of my loans and have some cash saved). Still, the work seems less interesting, and I don't want to be a consultant in the long-term.

In the long-run, I am not particularly sure what I want to be doing, so I want to keep my options as open as possible right now (which is why I want to go back to b-school). Which job do you think will give me the best long-term job options given my situation? Which job will be better for b-school admissions?

Any advice appreciated.

I went back and read through some of the stuff, at least I tried to, it was such a shit storm of spamming questions that it started giving me a headache, I had to close it.

Note: I think it's pretty clear he's not a native English speaker, most likely Asian. So I'm willing to give a pass for the language stuff.
