I'm just gonna tell you straight up if you're going to film school you're going to need a good computer down the road anyways so might as well get one now
I don't really know what requirements you have, for example it needs to be portable because you're in uni and you move around a lot/need to take it to classes etc. but just keep in mind a desktop is usually better than a laptop considering specs and the fact that desktops are much more unlikely to break somehow than a laptop. Once you get a mac pro or something an need a mobile and more portable option you might want to expand to include a MBP in your setup but till then I think a desktop would be a more viable option.
I would be way to nervous to run something like FCP on a windows modded to be a mac just too sketchy with so much on the line.
