Jeffersons Scholar - nominated but having doubts

I was nominated by my school for the jefferson scholarship. I know how prestigious this program is, however UVA is not even in my top 5 schools. I did apply early action as a match/reach since I am OOS. My predicament right now is whether I should focus on applications for schools that I want to go to more, or this scholarship...

    You likely know this but just in case... The Jeff Scholarship is completely unrelated to UVA admissions. They don't just state that, they actually mean it. S was his school's nominee 2 yrs ago. Made it to 2nd round interviews (where they selected one of approx 20 from an original pool of 80 in our region - so he felt good about being in the round of 20) but ultimately wasn't accepted to UVA . Also OOS. Very Very competitive. if you're not interested in the school, don't bother with the scholarship. However, it's an awesome school so give it some thought.
