To be honest I think that the best career choice you will make is because the job is better for you. You don't need to worry about what the Adcom thinks at this point because BOTH options are good. I would try and take the direction you want to (and a better salary always feels good too!) But since BOTH options are excellent, and both can be written well into the application, I think you can make your choice based on whats better for your life and career NOW, and not worry about the AdCom at this point.
