I recently started taking some online classes at Rio Grande College, which is in Eagle Pass, I had never taken online classes before and I just got through taking a history test and I made a 40! I was very upset and I spoke to the teacher who admitted that the highest grade that was made on the test was a 78. I am thinking of moving and I know eagle pass does not have a lot of jobs, but it has a very low cost of living. San Antonio has way more jobs, but a higher cost of living. It also has a shelter, which will help me transition while Eagle Pass does not. The reason this is such an issue is because I want to finish school and if i transfer, I will lose some credit hours and it will be way too expensive in San Antonio. I was thinking that maybe going to the school in person would be way better than actually doing it online. Should I go ahead and try to move to eagle pass to at least get a job and finish school there or should I just move to San Antonio and keep taking online classes while I work? Both have their pros and cons, and driving 140 miles to Eagle pass once a week is not going to cut it. Any suggestions? I need to make a decision ASAP

Eagle Pass is a dump. (My in-laws live in Del Rio, which isn't much better.) crime rate is bad, and as you said, there are very few jobs.
Move to San Antonio, and you will have a lot more opportunity.

I second that! If you haven't yet finished your first two years, enroll at San Antonio's Community College to obtain your Associate (2 yr) degree while being sure the courses you take will transfer to one of the local universities if you manage to go on for your Bachelor degree. You should consult with the Student Aid associate at whichever school you enroll at to find out what financial aid is available to you.

Good luck and congratulations on your determination to better yourself.
