You should go to University if you are committed to making "A's" in each course. Undergraduate, unlike law-school, is a place where working harder translates to higher grades.
Law schools initially consider only 2 factors: LSAT and GPA. Think of it like a doorway--if those combined scores are not high enough, the school won't even look at your application. Once you are inside the door, your application will either be accepted or reviewed. It will be accepted if your scores are high enough. If it is reviewed, grades from a University will be viewed much more favorably than those from a CC.
If you have a full ride, you should strongly consider taking it. You might have to put some distance between you and your friends for right now, but its only temporary. You will find a way to have fun and be happy!!
