    Default School or university?

    Someone told me that in modern English they often substitute the word "school" as a general tem for different educational institutions, even for universities. Is it true? Can I say, for example: As a rule, I go to school by bus. (where school = univesity)

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
