Welcome to the forums! It's great to be informed about your canopy choice, but you do have some time before you need to make a decision. Most people wait until after they get their A license and have downsized their canopy a bit. Plus, did you know you can also demo canopies before you choose? PD has a great program for that and you might also be able to demo canopies at a boogie near you too.
To answer your question, I don't really know too many people who buy Silhouettes for their first canopy, but I'm sure someone will come along and prove me wrong.
