    You are more than a sure shot. ...Like 3 times more than a sure shot. Heck, the new president of the university (whoever that may turn out to be) would put you in a running for getting keys to the university...if such a competition existed at UMW, that is. I sure hope you applied to UVA, W&M, et. al. too. Best wishes!
