What are you gonna do, drop out if you don't get one? Just apply for jobs until you get one.

You may have a shot, but I would absolutely apply to other positions as well and not count on it.

A not-below-median AA male at a T25... I would say you still have a chance. But it's good that you are also applying elsewhere. Best of luck!
