I reported a meager 12,000 on my apps..and got the following limits listed in my sig.
I truly want up to 6k (half of my current income right now.) in credit and then no more for a while.

My first job I had a salary of around $30k and my limits were mostly in the low thousands. That was over a decade ago though, so maybe not that relevant today..

My income flucuates between 29k and 35k because of commission.
I use $33.5k on credit applications. See my limits below.

Thats awesome Smug. I will be at a low income for several years (medical school + residency) but afterwards I shouldn't have a problem getting higher limits. Honestly my 16K is enough.
Residents still pull down like 70k right? It isn't like it was 15 years ago when residents made like 25k...
