I would think it's possible as long as you don't have any recent negative information and your other account balances are low.

When you are starting out with really low scores, they will usually still give CLIs, but they will be small like $75-$100.  They get bigger as you build your history with them and improve your scores.


Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)
Goal Score: 800

GE will soft your TU report which from your signature is at a decent score of 650 so as long as you make on time payments you should be fine.
