Booz Allen Hamilton vs. Huron Consulting Group

I've been debating over which is a better company to start off with between Booz and Huron. For Booz, I'll be aligned with the strategic Innovation Group and with Huron, I'll be aligned with education. Personally, I want to go into healthcare consulting (thus leaning more towards Huron) and pursue MBA down the road (ideally one of the top 10 B-schools). Which option seems like the best bet? What should I be considering when comparing etc. Any viewpoints would be appreciated!

These firms do different kinds of work. BAH does mostly federal government and defense consulting, although they have a fledgling commercial arm. Huron focuses on health care, ed, life sciences. Culturally, Huron seems like a better place to work (know former employees from both places) and I think they tend to pay better. But this probably comes down to the type of work you're interested in.
