A&M is my favorite, but their admissions office doesn't get in a hurry. Sending in early admissions doesn't mean you will get accepted before December. Your application still might be put on hold until the spring deadline applications are due. And then A&M will often wait to notify people late in April.
My suggestion is you really want to attend A&M is to just hold off if you can. If not, you can always back out of another school unless you somehow have to sign a form that commits you.
You might also be put on a waiting list or offered Blinn Team. Don't turn them down if you want A&M. Don't turn down A&M Galveston is you want A&M. Many students are pulled from those lists in the summer. You just have to wait them out sometimes. I wish you the best. A&M is an awesome place!!!
