I appd in December with a TU FICO of 670 and was turned down. I had maybe 1-2 inquiries, no CAs, a redeemed repo with lates from 2005, and two CC lates from 2002. Util was a little high at 50%. Seems like Util was a deciding factor. I can't remember details.

BTW, they'll likely pull TU.

Maybe you'll do better to APP 4 a National City and then when they finish with the takeover u will have a PNC. Plus National City gives out nice CL's.
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

National City does not offer their products in all states. I am in DE and it was not available. I was declined for a PNC Business card in January with ~720 scores, but I think the reason was high debt... (I'm at 30% overall on my revolving accounts). They checked TU for me.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO.
