I need the scoop on income requirements for leasing

Is there any real chance of a fulltime college student with a part time income and no cosigner getting a lease on a bottom of the line new car? With a credit profile that consists of only a previous student loan - account is seven years old & is in good standing?

Goal Score: 675 Who am I kidding? Goal Score: 750+ :smileyhappy:

Definitely.  I was and still am a fulltime college student two years when I was approved for my 2011 Mazda3 lease.  My monthly income at the time was roughly $1200 a month.  My credit history was less than 2 years with a mix of student loans and 3 or 4 credit cards.


Hope that bit of info helps!
