If you really want to know for sure you should call the US Bank Underwriting listed in the BackDoor Numbers area of this site. I was able to call on my secured card when I had one and it had told me it was still processing for like 3 days then finally on the 3rd day I called and it said Congratulations, You are Approved.

 

My wife has crappy credit and got approved so I'm thinking you should too. They are just going to verify you and then should approve you shortly.

The EXACT same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. It seems that the 7 day waiting period was simply to make sure that they received the funds. Approved!
