Hi Richard! While there are a lot of important factors that go into choosing the right University, the University of Texas - Austin has a really strong accounting program. I used to work in Recruiting at one of the Big 4 and we recruited very heavily from this program every year. Of course, no matter where you wind up, I would make sure the university you choose has the major that you are looking for and if you are interested in accounting at a Big 4 firm, make sure you are able to complete the credit requirement to sit for the CPA exam (this is typically 150 credits for semester schools and 225 credits for quarter schools). Best of luck!
