Chance me for my Reach

So I just visited Bentley and loved it, and I really want to go there now. I even had an interview there and it went great, me and the interviewer really connected well. But I'm unsure if I'll get accepted. I do have safety schools that I'm already applying to, but Bentley is really where my heart is now. Would ED be a good option to boost my chances?

GPA: 3.3 weighted, 3.1 unweighted. 2 honors no AP. Mostly all of my classes have been standard level. Also, I havent taken Calculus, will this be a disadvantage at all?

SAT: 1090 (I've been studying and on most practice tests now I score in the upper 1100's)

ECs:
Volunteering at a community center.
Teaching tennis to children.
Starting an auto detail business within a few weeks.
Ski club.
I own a few stocks(not sure if this would help being that bentley is a business school).

So after all this does Bentley seem realistic?

    if youre willing to pay the tuition for bentley even if you might not get merit or FA, apply ED! if your heart is set on it it would be a great way to show your interest. there is a higher acceptance rate for those who apply ED

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that applying ED to Bentley will get you in. Their holistic approach rewards those students who take challenging courses, not just the standard level, and both your gpa and SAT are too low. If your gpa reflected Honors and AP courses I may suggest otherwise, but I don't think you have strength of schedule on your side. Just my opinion. But I believe their average SAT last year was 1290. Did you try Bryant University in Rhode Island? Also, I do believe most incoming Freshman at Bentley have already had Calculus in high school.
