In brief: Impossible to say

The only thing that can be said for sure is the earlier a correct disgnosis is made and treatment started, the better the chance of complete remission and/or cure.

In brief: It depends

Chronic leukemia as it name implies can be a slowly progressive disease and might be present for years until picked up by routine tests or the disease starts picking up in aggressiveness.
Acute leukemia on the other hand advances within a matter of weeks so there is little time before significant symptoms appear.
