Both paths lead to the same end result, and the 'butter bar' you'd receive from going to one looks exactly the same as the one you'd receive by going to the other. Once you're commissioned, what school you went to doesn't matter. You're still a "cherry Lieutenant", either way, and how you advance up the chain of command will be dependent on your performance as a service member and a leader, and not on the basis of which university you attended.
Military academies would seem to be better for being more military focuses, but plenty of officers receive their commission by taking ROTC is a civilian university, so take that for what it's worth.
