Shouldn't be a problem, normal mail shouldn't take longer than 4/5 days. We sent our AOS package by express mail though, just to be able to track it. Even if you file AOS after your I-94 expired there won't be any problem. Some people file for AOS months after their I-94 expired without problems.

It does not have to reach Chicago before your I-94 expires. There is no deadline to file, so you can simply mail it Priority and be fine.
