If you are a fresh grad, start with audit for a couple of busy seasons then shift to advisory. Given that in advisory, your main role is to "advise", a mere university knowledge would make you look like a babe in the wood. Build up a strong specific foundation first.
One more thing to consider -- the field in advisory you are interested in. Familiarize yourself with the Big 4's portfolio of engagement and clients. What firm specializes in Risk? in IT Audit? in forensics? SGV is respected for having a top notch IT audit group, while PwC is leading the Performance Improvement field (though SGV has a giant PI engagement and you'll be lucky to be part of it). Globally, Deloitte is very known for their Risk practice but not sure with the local counterpart (I think P&A has a pretty good run on this field).
Lastly, research on the training provided by the service lines. For audit, I believe its pretty the same to all of the Big 4. Audit, after all, is pretty much structured. As for advisory, I couldn't over-emphasized the importance of having a kick-*** advisory training especially on the soft skills and contemporary practices.
*If your ultimate goal is to join a "real" management consulting firm (MBB), then a Big 4 advisory is a good start.
