lot of risk here
you're applying with 169/3.49. you'll have objectively very good options outside of the t14. i would see what the regionals offer, and then compare it to your t14 aid
Why not blanket the lower t-14? I can see OP getting into the lower t-14 and leveraging scholarships (if they come up)... outside of that, good regional + ties seem to be a consensus, no?
