Only my top pick gave me money

I think it might be Haram to wonder, but the only school that gave me money was my top choice (minnesota).  What does this mean?  I plan to work in the public sector so I really don't care too much about the whole HYS thing... but this makes me wonder if I should have applied higher.

They were probably more LSAT centric than some others. Who knows? Congrats!

Alright, tired of linking.... but you get the point.  You could have gotten into higher ranked schools, but ince you are considering PI, I don't know if you should have applied higher. I guess my response is  useless, considering it doesn't answer your question.  Either way, Minnesota is a great school.  Gratz!

I probably could have gone T14... Nevertheless, I am excited about owning one of those fargo hats.  I think I will just have to attempt to dominate so I can get some sort of sweet clerkship.

you can think of it that way or you can think of the fact that your top choice not only wants you to go there, they want to pay you to go there.
