Re: AMEX BCE short credit history

I think you have an okay shot at a revolver; much better chance at a charge card. I say app for the green first, if you're approved, immediately app for BCE. If you're denied for green, then you should wait until your Freedom is a year old before you apply again. As for your income question, I think it is fine. Make sure you put student-employed for the income source, most lenders understand that student income will be low and varies. They'll weigh your credit much more than your income. That's just my opinion, but a good one I think :smileyvery-happy:

 

Good luck!
