I screwed up in college, now want to try again.

I failed out of two colleges while attending as a traditional-aged student (teen-20's) for academic problems, but I do have many credits from the classes I managed to pass. As a 26-year-old adult, what are my chances for getting into a competitive school now that I have my head on straight and would like to return? I'm interested in studying linguistics, which is offered at only the toughest schools (UVA, William and Mary) in my state, and would need to stay in-state for financial, family, and health reasons.
