Backdoor numbers/recons for CUs?


Hi all


Has anyone got their CC approved from any credit union after being rejected the first time?


My application for a Patelco student visa card got denied recently.


Does any know whom I should contact in Patelco to get a reconsideration?

I always thought the entire point of a Credit Union was to have a more personal relationship to a specific banker. Therefore, they would be like having an instant manual review of an application as they each make a determination within the bank as opposed to the run of the mill application type of operation in the larger banks. 


Have you tried larger banks and their student cards?
