Inq's are in real time. Yes, there might be some delay with processing but in the end the lenders will see your inq's.
IIRC, you did not have any credit. Were you able to get a co-signer or have your Dad add you as an AU?
Alright sounds good.
No, but I have plans to do it myself!!

You can try, but credit pulls are instant. Alternatively, you can try picking different lenders that are known to pull different reports so you don't get tons of inquiries on one report.
This is what most people try to do, so each lender will only see 1 or 2 pulls, if you pick your apps carefully. This usually will keep you from spooking any lenders. Keep in mind, you never really know what some lenders want, and the effect on your scores may be less if your AAoA is longer.

I like Luscher's thinking! It doesn't work like that, but it sounds like mad fun.
Oddly enough that method worked.....long long ago tho

So applying for both the Citi Dividen for students and Forward for students is probably a bad idea?
Not at all but both will most likey pull EX
