I would also like to add that profile reviews may take 24-48 hours to complete. Once the review process is complete, you will be notified via email and on your Upwork account. Let us know if you have other questions. Thank you!
I'm not sure I quite underastand the question. I hope you don't have multiple accounts.
For that one and only account that you are allowed to have, if you can bid, it probably means that your profile is approved and you can bid for jobs.
Yes, your profile was accepted, feel free to start submitting proposals for jobs that you find to suit your skills and experience. Please, check out these threads Getting Started on Upwork and Hiring Headquarters. There you’ll find some excellent articles and learn more about Upwork.
I wanted to know the reason behind the rejection of my profile. Based on my experience, it seems a little unfair, and to be honest, I expected a better reason than something as vague as "10000 applicants each day".

You don't really expect them to write a custom "Why we are not accepting you" letter to 9800 rejected profiles a day, do you?
And thus a template answer? Something that can be copy-pasted and sent to 9800 profiles at the same time? Doesn't that raise some serious questions about the reviewal process in the first place?
Also, not sure if my question warrants for the sarcasm that was pretty evident from the reply.
