I'm pretty sure that the maximum amount of subsidized loans you can get is fixed (and pretty small) and they max you out on that before they give you unsubsidized. At least that's how it worked for me in undergrad.
Edit: just checked the stafford loan website. The max subsidized amount Per year for a grad student is 8500.
Sweet, thanks a lot for looking that up. I'm pretty close to the max, so I guess I should just take it and be happy haha.
