<p>Thanks very much!</p>

<p>I'd say you're looking very good, aubergine. </p>

<p>With Pomona there is no guarantee, but if you manage to write a few tight and interesting essays, I'd put you at 85/15.</p>

<p>It looks as if you're Pomona material, but as enkephalon states, there's no guarantee.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
