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..

I think long flawless history and high scores will help with getting big limits.

The best way to get to big limits faster is to open a secured cc and max out the deposit. Show lenders that you're responsible with the limit for 6-12 months and then apply. Most lenders will either match or double your current highest limit to win your business.

DCU Platinum: 4000 - Discover IT: 11000 - Walmart: 5000 - AMEX BCP: 18000 - Chase Freedom VS: 5000

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...
