I'm a freshman in college and I recently purchased horn. I've played Bb all my life but decided to go with a CC. I haven't even had it a week but I'm already getting used to the fingerings and key. I think it's really a matter of what you find works the best for you. If it's possible then you should try to play as many different horns as possible so that you can pick the one you like. CC tend to be a little more expensive then Bb...but they also tend to hold their value you better, and if you get a CC it's very important to have the fifth valve...which I don't find essential on a Bb.
Hope I was helpful :)
