I would say your chances are terrific.
Although all the major clinical trials looked at six months post treatment for the measure of cure, most of the relapses I see after treatment is stopped occurs before six weeks. Of course the 3 month result will be more reassuring, and a negative six month result will need to be rejoiced. Go celebrate with a hot fudge sundae - probably something you did not want to look at while on interferon.
