Can a Upenn student chance me?

Hello I just finished my freshman year at Penn State University(schreyers honors college) majoring in "energy business and finance" and I am going to apply to the University of Pennsylvania as a transfer for junior year. After taking some courses and exploring my major I have realized I would like to focus my academics more towards sustainability from a business perspective. Wharton's Environmental and Risk Management major is exactly what I am looking for. I realize that Upenn as a whole only accepts around 10% of transfers so this would be a long shot however I think I may have a chance.

-College GPA: 3.7-3.8(I realize this is average for Upenn)
-36 credits from freshman year
-Essays will be of high caliber(getting help from numerous professors)
-2-3 strong letters of recommendation from close professors and one from admissions dean
-Enrolled in the Penn State honors college
-Dean's List both semesters
-Penn State Superior Academic Achievement Award(2 times)

-Tutor at the writing center
-Residence Hall Council
-Political Science Club
-Ski and snowboard club
-Penn State Honors Society
-Volunteer at the salvation army
-Volunteer at habitat for humanity
-Volunteer coaching
-Volunteer at local state park doing environmental work
-A good amount of international experience in the past
-Attended several research conferences
-Research in energy field sophomore year(hopefully will be published)
-Internship at Energy Company Summer 2013
-Intern and employee at local psychology firm 3 consecutive summers throughout high school
-Play the piano and baseball
