Closing a card will not immediately affect either your AAoA or credit length history. You can read more about it here: Closing Credit Cards.

anyone have any ideas what my chances are for apping for a Chase freedom card????
Chase included in your BK?
The GE Cards have you been requesting CLI every 4 months... looks like you have had some of them for over a year but still lower lines.
I would probably take any "possible" hit right now and get rid of the plan B, especially if you want to try for plan A later.
