Should you apply to lower ranked schools in the hopes of getting scholarship money? The thing is I don't really know if I want to work for someone else for the rest of my life. The chance to work for myself is kind of attractive. I do not have the numbers to get into a tier 1 so why not go tier 3/4 with money?


Yeah, if you know you want to do this, why not?  One attractive part about a lower ranked school is presumably you can stand out more.  Remember, no jobs are guaranteed.
