Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Report: Deny

From United Airlines MileagePlus Premier 1K
To Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards A-List Preferred

I have 1k with United and had just made A-list the last few days of 2016.
Wanted to see if they would use my 1k status to give me a fast track status to A-list Preferred.
Emailed my request to the email address mentioned here. Got the denial within an hour :-(
