Could go either way.  I have seen approvals for Blue with EX scores lower than yours.
 
Good luck!

Every time I got that I was approved. Normally they declined right away when they wanted to decline me.
Here we go again...

My EX was about 690 when I got blue
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

Re: Just applied for an Amex Blue

So it's the next moring and I'm still waiting to see if I've been approved.  I called last night and the woman told me that my app had been sent to the credit report review dept and the website still says my app is being processes.  Is that good?  Should I call back this morning for an update?

Just keep checking online-
 
IMO- The credit dept checking is a good sign.
