Army Intelligence Officer vs. Marine Intelligence Officer?

Hello. I have just gotten word that I have received both the AROTC and the NROTC MO scholarship. I now have a pretty tough choice ahead of me. My ultimate goal is to get the intelligence MOS. I know officer MOS's are not guaranteed in either Marines or Army so which do I have a better shot at getting MI? Physically I have no problems ( 20 pull ups ect.) and have maxed out the pft for both Army and Marines. Now my real question is what are the pros and cons over picking Army over Marines or vice versa?Which branch will give me more opportunities? ( special forces intel?) And which branch will give me more benefits? Any answer is appreciated. Thank you.

By the way my name is not Sarah. I am a male.

    The big pro for the Army is there will always be a lot more slots for any given job/rank than there are in the USMC because the Army is so much larger.

    The Army has five times the slots for an intelligence officer, and you've probably heard this before: change your screen name.

    Every unit has, for example:

    - Unit Maintenance Officer

    - Unit Training Officer

    - Unit SAEDA Officer

    - Unit UA Officer

    - Unit PAO Officer

    - Unit Postal Officer
