Absolutely! AND if this is THE card that you want, what's one inq? At least you'll know where you stand and what to work on. IMO.


I don't mind inquiries all that much.  To me, they're like battle scars.  Without them, you'll never win any major battles.


Then what are you waiting for? :smileyindifferent:

Lol even with the 3 inquiries from August I'm not deterred. I guess it's just paranoia on my end. I'm already mentally preparing myself for the recon call. Mind you, I think my score is good enough, as well as my salary. I make 55k/yr

3 isn't much at all.  If I were you, I'd app and recon if no instantly approved.  Even if denied, ask the underwriter for "tips" on how to get approved for the next time.  Much better than doing nothing from being overly cautious waiting for the elusive "perfect" time.

 

Good plan implemented with vigor now is better than a perfect plan 30 minutes later.

Oh, sorry. I thought you were OP, didn't stop to look. Doing too many things at once, I guess.
