    I think you have a good chance ED. My D was accepted ED w/ comparable stats. Hers were a bit better in some areas and less in others. She also had legacy. Although you have that letter of recommendation from a teacher at the school.

    So, I think you have a shot. If you apply RD, I think your chances are less.
