Recommender for MFin/MFE - Analyst vs VP from earlier internship

Hi Quantnet community, I am a final-year undergraduate applying to top MFin/MFE programs in the US. Having done an IBD summer internship at a BB, I face the choice of asking either an analyst or a VP to write one of my recommendations. Both are likely to be happy to help.

The trade-off I face is that:

Letter by VP
- Pro: potentially more impressive due to more senior rank
- Con: only worked with me indirectly, so can only provide generic description of my work ethics and dedication; more reserved and neutral in language

Letter by analyst
- Pro: Can better vouch for my ability, substantiate with concrete examples, can be more persuasive in language
- Con: potentially less impressive due to junior rank

Which one would you say make a stronger case?
