Help with which college for pre med?

I've got accepted into A&M College Station, Baylor, Indiana Bloomington, NYU, University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas Tech (also got capped by UT) . I'm a chem major and may double major in astronomy.

As you can see, I live in Texas and for me financially, it would be the best to go to UTD, Tech, or A&M but I have no idea which would be the best for pre-med.

I'm leaning towards Baylor because when I went to go visit, the campus was nice and got along with the professors. But my dad is considering the cap program for UT. People have told me it isn't a good idea to waste a year at UTA and then make new friends and settle down in somewhere else.

Any suggestions? My parents have no idea how any of this works because we immigrated here. Thank you so much.

    I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere with intention to leave next year. Where ever you go, go with enthusiasm and intention to come out with a degree.

    If you like Baylor then go there. It’s a good school and solid for pre-med. Did you get any scholarship or aid there?

    Cap'ed students can only get into specific majors where there's space left (mostly liberal arts, education..) Forget cap'ed ut.
    You got wonderful acceptances.
    1) what can your parents afford from income and savings?
    2) what is the net cost* at each?
    (Tuition fees room board) - (grants, scholarships) =
    3) did you get honors college anywhere?
    4) what was your set or act score any other stats?
