I think you will be approved
Apped online: 12/8/12 and was instantly approved.
I called the automated number and found out I had been given a $500 CL.
Called the number and found out why a small line, etc and found out it was because a few cards didn't update their new Credit Lines.
I waited a few weeks for them to update my reports with my new lines.
Submitted CLI Request on 1/7/13 and called the backdoor number the same day. I spoke with a rep and got approved for a $1,000 increase.
End result: Approved for Chase Freedom and have a $1,500 Credit Limit.

I have never been "recommended" for approval but have had to ask for reconsideration before.
I got the Chase Amazon card about a week or two before I applied for the Chase Freedom.
Applied online - not sure of date, sorry. I received a further review message
Waited for letter (back when I did not know anything of ringing the card companies and thought you had to wait). I was declined for "too many requsts of credit from us", because of the Chase Amazon.
Searched online and saw people had the same problem and they rang in for reconsideration. After a few minutes I was approved.

I think you may be able to find out via the automated system even before Monday. Sometimes the computers just update the next day or so and get an auto approval after a manual push. If the rep still has to deal with it then you must wait another day or two
