Hi Sam...nothing is guaranteed. You have to figure out what your priorities are at this point in time of your life. If security to you means being an hour away from home, friends and family..then that may just be what you need to lower the anxiety that is is causing you.
Someone as young as you are and taking on as much as you are will really get through anything you make your mind to....but that doesn't mean to sacrifice what you need in order to help you through your journeys.
I personally wouldn't have a struggle...I'd be where my friends and family and support system is.....especially if the school offers what I need to graduate to get to a profession I'm desiring.
The "best" is only such on a subjective level. It doesn't make you any less of what you want to become. If your emotional spirit is empty during the journey...that's too much of a price to pay.
I'm happy you made the decision to check out the other university. You're a planner and a doer.....there will be nothing stopping you! It won't hurt to try the new university for this year....if it sets you back if this doesn't work out...you might need to catch up next year....there are always options.
You can only try to see if it will work for you....hopefully, you'll find the answer that suits you.
