Anyone got Cap One Venture with less than 3 years of credit history?

Since it says "Excellent" credit requirement of Venture, which needs at least 3 years of credit history. This one is killing me because I only have one and half year's history.  Anyone successfully get an "Excellent" required CC without 3 year's credit history either through EO or online app?

 

 Thank you.

Can probably get it with less than 3 years. Only downside to this card is you cant redeem your points for travel unless you have enough for the whole purchase.
