Not yet, I applied at midnight last night. I got approved for 11.5% APR for the card though? Good or bad? It's the lowest APR of any of my cards right now.

Looks like you are going in the right direction! IMO, under 10% is excellent, under 13% good. Like you said, your credit profile is thin, so in your case it might be excellent.

Re: I would like to join DCU, need some help..

Please keep us updated on membership status - I'm curious about this.  I was one of the ones they denied membership to because of problems with verifying my identity even though I sent them my DL, SSC, paystub and utility bill and everything matched with my CR.  I had even gotten an instant approval for a CC with a $7500 CL and told me they would send it as soon as I had my membership number.  I really wanted a CU membership but don't have any local ones in my area and was bummed out that they wouldn't approve my membership. 

Barclays USAir World MC $8300 - DCU $7500 - USAA World MC $7000 - PayPal Extras MC (GE) $5500 - Chase Saphire Preferred $5000 - Discover It $6000 - Barclays Sallie May $2700 - Chase Freedom $1000 - Capital One $8500 (business) - store cards ranging from $500-$9500

I have no derogs at all, just a few INQs on EQ. Postivie credit history on my side for the last 7 months. So I see no reason to decline me. I'll be calling them on Tuesday to follow up, and Wednesday if I get nothing prior.
