What are my chances for transferring to Umich?

Hello, I applied to University of Michigan as a transfer from a mid tier research uni in Michigan. I'm curious what you think of my application and whether or not I will be accepted. I have concerns due to me transferring from a community college to my current university. I fear that this will put me at a disadvantage.

High school
2.8 GPA
23 ACT
Early College program
President of community outreach club

Community College
3.84 GPA
accumulated 47 credits at transfer
Deans list
Phi Theta Kappa (CC honors society)

3.81 GPA
28 credits accumulated + 43 transferred credits + 12 currently taking = 83 total credits
English honors program
Three stellar recommendation letters
One publication in an academic journal
Amnesty International member
Member of multiple academic literature organizations

I know Umich is competitive, especially the program I am trying to get into (the English department in the LSA). Do you think I have a good chance of getting in? Or should I just stay at my current university and finish my B.A. here. It be much cheaper to stay at my current university, and since I know multiple professors well, I can get out more publications/attend conferences/ and get good LOR. However, I've considered Umich because it has one of the best English departments in the country, and in general it provides more services and challenges that I feel that my current university doesn't provide.

Thank you!
