I think it is your 169 LSAT that did you in at most of the T14.

Originally UCLA was my top choice, but I think I've been slightly influenced by the t-14 or bust mentality of TLS. so lets get to the question:
I've so far not been accepted to a school higher ranked than UCLA (but I only applied to 1 super reach of HYS, and then Berkeley, Duke, & Cornell). I'm interested in working in California long-term but am not opposed to living elsewhere. They offered me a $90,000 scholarship that's contingent on maintaining a 2.5 GPA, and I qualified for another 9k in grant aid. I'm also really interested in one of their specializations, my significant other has ties to the LA area, and the weather is fabulous. I have a 4.0+ gpa and a 169 LSAT score, average softs but no real work experience.
So, is my apprehension unmerited? Should I just be thrilled with this opportunity? Should I wait a year and apply next cycle (assuming my nerves can take it)? Or would I likely have the same results from the t-14, plus have lost UCLA's favor for blowing them off the first time, ergo no merit aid? I could use a fresh perspective.
EDIT: I'm sorry this got accidentally posted in the wrong forum!
If and only if you want California.
