Deciding between two Big 4 Advisory internship offers, wanting to go into consulting. What to do?

I am a rising sophomore at Cornell's undergrad business school. My goal is to become a MBB consultant in the future. I received two offers for internships next summer (2021): EY Launch and PwC Start (both in the Advisory branch). I am aware that these consulting & advisory branches do not compare to MBB, but I am hoping to strengthen my resume and have a fulfilling experience over next summer. Both offers are for NYC and occur around the same time. Is there a significant difference between these two Big 4 firms regarding a future in consulting?
