Bank of America Alaska Airlines card
Hello there, today i went to my local B of A and applied for the Alaska Airlines travel rewards card and after a couple hours checked my application online and received this message:

A credit decision has been made. Your business is appreciated and careful consideration was given to your request. Please allow 7-10 days to receive a letter by mail explaining the reasons for our decision.

Does that mean im approved or declined? I am 18 and am currently a B of A customer and have the BankAmericard cash rewards card with a $700 limit. I also have a card with USAA with a $300 limit and i have never had a balance on either card, always paid off before the end of the month and have never charged more than $150 (B of A card). Any suggestions or advice on what i should do?
