WTP @ MIT or SAMS @ CMU?

Hi, I got accepted to the Women's Technology Program for EECS at MIT and the Summer Academy for Math and Science at Carnegie Mellon. I am unsure of which program is program is better, they're both really great, and I'm weighing my options. Does one look better to colleges than the other? I know WTP is more difficult to get into and has the MIT name, but there are many appealing aspects to SAMS and it's still at a great university.

SAMS
- 6 weeks
- CMU credit and non-credit seminars in math, science, and computer science
- project
- free
- SAT prep included
- Personal and Career development workshops
- real college experience at CMU
- about 17% acceptance rate (120 students selected)

WTP
- 4 weeks
- non-credit classes (electrical engineering, comp sci, math)
- project
- little less of a true college experience, slightly more summer camp-y but still very rigorous
- MIT and basically free
- 8.6% acceptance (60 girls selected)
