I would worry less about the number of hours and look at the quality of them. Do you feel like you understand what the profession is like? Do you understand our different roles, in varying fields? Do you know what our obligations are? Can you say that you will do a good job? Can you say why you see yourself doing this job?
If so, don't worry about it. If not, keep exploring!
I had fewer hours than you and got in. I found it hard to work 25 hours a week on top of full time school and put in a lot of volunteer hours. I didn't start gaining relevant experience until after 2nd year and didn't know I wanted to apply until grade 12 whereas many people have been accumulating hours since they were like 14.
But again it's not about the number of hours, at least not at OVC. And thank god because I simply couldn't afford to do as much unpaid/volunteer work as others can.
