Will JCPenny Reconsider? & When should I call?

[ Edited ]

Last night, I applied for a JCPenny card.  I got the message that I would get a response in 7-10 business days.  I'm thinking that I am already denied, but I will not know until I receive a letter.  My question is, is it too early to call them today to call the backdoor number?  If I do call the backdoor number, will they be able to inform me about the status of my application?  And also, if I was denied will I be able to reconsider? 


Thanks so much in advance.  I look forward to your responses.

My experience you can't recon a GE card, but I would call to get decision
