a university is a university. but it really depends on what you want to study. one college, lets say UC Berkeley (a very fine school) would better suit anyone attemping to gain a degree in a major science (bio, chemistry, ect) rather than an art (graphic, fine arts, ect).
just dont go to specialty schools. they may teach you some stuff, but it doesnt look great on applications. for example, a job interview:
boss guy: so, whered you get your training/degree?
you: <name of a specialty school advertised on TV.>
boss guy: ah, i see. well thats all mr. sanders, we'll be in touch.
...and voila, youre still jobless.
your best bet: go see your school counselor. ask for a list of colleges that have good graphic arts programs. and keep your mind open.
I'm not living, I'm just killing time.
