George Washington University Art Exhibit - Certificate of Achievement for Artistic Excellence

1. W&M On-Campus Interview: Went very very well
2. Optional Submission: Great, humorous, quirky
3. Essay: Good
4. Arts Submission: Very good (But I don't have an instructor rec. & I never competed)
5. School Report Rec: Good
Teacher Rec 1: Very Very good (debate coach, has known me for 4 years)
Teacher Rec 2: Very Very good (Writes great recs,Harvard grad, potential connections?)
6. I made an exceptional oil painting of a W&M landmark (Crim Dell).

Can I please get an honest opinion from someone who knows W&M? Do you think I could make the ED acceptance for W&M (ED for W&M is 48-53% acceptance rate because of smaller pool). I appreciate all input.
