While your academic stats are excellent, I think you would have a slim chance of acceptance without a full-time job for at least part of the period since your graduated from Hofstra. Unless there is a really good reason for you having two part-time jobs, I'm pessimistic.

Would you consider trying to find a full-time job and then applying perhaps in the fall of 2014?
