Documentary vs. Narrative/Feature Film

Will I get the skills I need to work on a feature film set from a college that focuses solely on documentaries -- or will this be a waste of time and money?

From the technical standpoint, too: having experienced night shoots, behavior of gear in the cold or sizzling under the sun plus problems arising from simple misunderstandings or so will drop-forge you to a filmmaker.
Not to forget editing. It is a whole different task to cut 45 astonishing minutes out of rolls of non-repeatable images compared to the assembly of takes after script and production scheme. Fear of being a coward? You are in that college, so pull it! No one will be able to steal it from you afterwards.
