TAMUG vs. Blinn TEAM?

<p>I'm graduating high school in June and need some advice. Ultimately my goal has always been to go to Texas A&M University in College Station. I have a 3.5 GPA from a competitive high school in Texas. I got accepted to Blinn TEAM and Texas A&M at Galveston. I am completely torn between my two options!
With Blinn TEAM, I could live in CS and be fully involved in campus activities (apart from Greek life) and take most of my classes at Blinn and 3 at A&M and then transfer in 2 years. This is the road my older sister did. At first she hated it because she never felt like a true A&M student nor a true Blinn Student. Yet she made a 4.0 and is transferring in fully a year early. Also, my whole family lives in CS and my parents grew up there so we have strong, rooted connections in that town and I know how to navigate the city very well. Plus, I already have a nice dorm lined up but I could always cancel that...
However with Galveston all I would have to is maintain a 2.5 GPA and transfer to A&M CS full time. My parents think this area of Galveston is sketchy but I don't know. Furthermore, my boyfriend of 2 years is doing TAMUG and then transferring to CS after one year. Which would make my freshman year much more enjoyable without the strain of a long distance relationship. Regardless, this might actually be the easiest way of getting into A&M but I'm just conflicted.
Either way I end up at A&M CS full time but I'd love your advice!!
(Also- does TAMUG have greek life? And how are the dorms?)</p>

<p>My son is in similar circumstances. He was accepted to Blinn TEAM and TAMUG. He has decided to do the Blinn TEAM option. He wants to be at TAMU, be part of the Aggie community, and join the Corps. </p>

<p>Have you made a trip down to TAMUG? If you haven't, go down during the week and check it out for yourself. The campus is small which means you don't have to walk far to get to class. The dorms are average. There is less that 2000 students so class size is small. </p>

<p>In the end, you need to make a decision that is best for you and your future. I heard positive things about both options. If your relationship is strong, it can tolerate a year's separation.</p>
