Re: APPROVED!

Send the TD app in. You don't know what's going to happen with Discover.

If you're 19 and you happen to start with 3 cards right off the bat, your AAOA in 10 years is going to be rock solid.

 

Congratulations on the Cap1.

Re: APPROVED!

I was just on the phone with discover, and becuase I only go to a two year school they had to put my card through as a regular, not student. That, to me doesnt make any sense. College is college, Sorry that I go to a two year concentrated school....? Anyways, I'll send the TD one today. Thanks guys!

That's interesting.  I wonder if the same thing happened with some of the other college apps.  Out of curiosity, I don't understand what you mean by concentrated school.  What is the name of the school?  Do you get a AA or BA/BS or what kind of degree?  Maybe Discover and others have lists of schools that count.  In any case, whatever it is, you might want to call Discover Recon and speak to them.  Also, Wells Fargo remains.  I think it is worth going in person and applying for it.

Re: APPROVED!

Good luck on the apps!  Building a good credit history now will help you down the road immensely.  My first card was a Discover when I was 19, and I still have it in my wallet today; had I known then what I know now, I would have opened up a couple more CCs at the time.  But, even with just the one, I was able to build a good history; within five years, my scores were in the mid-700s, and I was preapproved for an Amex Gold.  So cast a wide net, open a few accounts, and after a few years of gardening, you'll be way ahead of the game.


Starting Score: 617 (EQ 6/10/12)
Current Score (8/28/13): EQ: 691 EX: 706 TU: 700
Goal Score: 700

Discover it $4,500 (02/2001); Amex PRG (Backdated to 01/2006); Amex ZYNC (Backdated to 07/2006); Wells Fargo Cash Back Visa $5,500 (12/2011); Citi Diamond Preferred MC $2,000 (07/2012); B of A Cash Rewards Visa Signature $5,000 (02/2013)

Re: APPROVED!

Btw, no matter what happens with TD or whether or not you go for Wells Fargo.  After this, I highly recommend you do nothing app wise for at least 6 months to 1 year.
