LEK vs. Booz vs. Parthenon

Hey monkeys,

I received offers at all three firms for a summer position (they will explode in a couple weeks) and I am coming from a target consulting school (Dartmouth/Duke). Last summer, I interned at a small VC firm in Boston.

I have no idea what I want to do after consulting, whether that's going in to nonprofit, private equity, or corp dev. However, I do know that I want to summer at a firm that I can see myself being at full time and will offer me the best b-school opps.

If you can offer up some insight as to how I can best make my decision and what factors I should consider, that would be great.

IMO, all three firms are great places to be for the summer, but I don't know yet which group I will be in at Booz, and that could be a deciding factor - it's definitely not going to be Energy though. Also, I think Parthenon and LEK have the best buyside options from what I have read and heard from my older friends who have broken in, but obviously both are smaller than Booz also.

Thanks.
