yes I would say you did get lucky. congratulations on graduating from college. when I first applied for a credit card back in the late 80's around 1987 or 1989, I tried for the green american express card I got turned down. I even got turned down a few years later with the gold card on a couple of applications.
It might have something to do with you traveling on southwest. you said you fly out of BWI a lot, when you charge your tickets on your wells fargo card, southwest probably sees this and they want you as a card member. I do understand what you are asking, the 14,500 is a high limit this might be some kind of fluke, or they know something about your career, that made them say gee we should give this customer a 14,500 limit.
