Thank you for all the congrats!! I appreciate it. Wish I came to myfico and these forums alot sooner. Didn't realize not having any credit cards was not a good thing when it comes to credit scores. I will use them responsibly. From what I understand I should always pay the balance in full?
P.S. I have one debt to take care of and it is my student loan debt. Defaulted, Unresolved on 8/2/96. Please se my "To Pay or To Rehab" post in the student laon thread if anyone has any advice on dealing with paying this off.
Thanks again all!

Thanks for your advice Revelate. I will most definitely use the cards responsibly. They will be used strictly as a way to rebuild credit and improve my credit score. I went ahead and applied for 3 credit cards and went 3 for 3. I was approved for the Barclaycard Rewards Mastercard with a $1300 CL, Chase Freedom with a $2500 CL, and Discover it with an $1100 CL.
Congrats on your approvals
