Will My Acceptance Be Revoked?

I got accepted into SUNY Albany and SUNY New Paltz. I want to go to Albany and there's nothing stopping me except this fear that my admissions will be rescinded later on.

An overview of all four years goes as follows
freshman year: 1.85 2.85
sophomore year: 1.79 2.80
junior year: 1.89 2.87
senior year: 1.80 2. didn't happen yet.

During the admissions process the transcript Albany received had up to my final semester Junior year grades the last one I had an 87-88 semester average and an 84.71 gpa. The transcript New Paltz received demanded my mid-year grades which had showed an 80.76 semester average and my gpa is 84.23 now, New Paltz had initially waitlisted me but accepted me later on.

My question is, does it seem likely that Albany will take away my admission since I dropped from an 87-89 average my junior year to an 80 average my senior year(My cumulative average dropped from an 84.71 to an 84.23)? I haven't failed anything but I have 70's in two classes and my highest grade is an 85.
Should I then choose New Paltz instead because they saw how bad I fell senior year and still accepted me so they would be less likely to take away my admission?
Is there a way to ask officials at Albany about my situation without causing more trouble?
Will Albany take away my admission, if they did what would I do about college then?
Please if you can address all my concerns.

    I would call admissions and ask hypothetically what would happen to a student with these grades. Ask would the person be wise committing to New Paltz or would U of A be okay with the grades. You don't need to disclose who you are just say that you are an accepted student with a few questions. Good luck. As a mom, I am concerned that your senior grades have dropped. College will require more work and you will have to be self motivated to succeed.

    Your senior grades dropping is worrisome, but I agree with what the previous responder said about calling the school without giving your name, but also, some other things to consider in this would be, were any of your courses you got lower grades in AP/college credit courses? Universities are generally more accepting of droping grades if they're higher level courses. My suggestion would be to study as hard as you can for your senior finals and try to up your final grade for your senior year and go from there.
