Just Approved For Apple Barclay

[ Edited ]

Just got approved for barclay financing,i got  awarded a 2000 dollar credit limit, my highest yet. Also, I was wondering two months ago I applied and got denied because too many inquiries, but when I applied I didn't mark that I was a student. So today, the same amount of inquires, I marked I was a student and I was approved for a card. Does the option of being a student lower the bar for approval.

Barclay's computer approval systems are weird most of the time. They like to decline for too many INQ's but a recon usually bypass's them. The student mark probably didn't change anything.
