Listen, I agree you have a fighting chance of getting in but let me tell you you have to fight!! You can't just sit back and wait for an admit letter -- you need to be showing your interest.
As a native to Los Angeles who now lives in DC and is attending GW next fall, I would like to say that I think you should deeply consider GW. I'm not in the business of convincing people to make personal choices BUT I really do not believe at all that GW grads are at any disadvantage of finding something out west. In fact, students are encouraged to apply outside of DC and have a much easier time of finding work in other cities (NY excluded). Good luck!!
