    Assuming you're from North America, the school itself doesn't matter exactly but it is important to look at the department you'll be studying at. Universities with good science, specifically biology programs are important. You also want to look into your ability to research and assistantships while you're studying because they will help you get in to a good phd program which is what most zoologists have. So, once you finish 4 years at an undergraduate then you take what's called the GRE to get into graduate school. From here you'll either go on to do a masters or skip that and do a phd which most larger universities offer. During this time you'll be doing research and learning more specific things; in total a phd can take anywhere from 3-6+ years depending on the person and the program. And then once you're done with that, you'll probably have to do post doc work for another year or two, which basically means more research.

    So to answer your question without totally scaring you: look for a good science program and at the first school it should be a four year program or whatever will get you a bachelors of science.
