I got a pre-qualified letter in the mail a week ago, but instead of calling I talked to a local banker. It took about 3 min and I was approved
I was pretty surprised because a couple of months ago I was denied for having to many open accounts with balances(uti was is 79%), but I thought I would give it another try cause they wanted to offer me 0% for 9 months. That was going to help me transfer some balances and get ahead with the 0%.
My score from EQ is 679/TU ? my total open accounts is 7, and my uti is still high. I have no baddies. So on that note I just wanted to pass on that the banks are still lending even with out having excellent credit.

US bank is very conservitive, that CL speaks volumes.
BTW...You may be able to qualify for a soft pull $1500 CLI every six months with US Bank. It is one of my favorite features with my US Bank CC.

I have 7 CCs myself and a high available total CLs like you. I know of trying to keep them happy. I literally put two different CCs in my wallet every week to do so. It is somewhat of a chore!
My only other revolving TL is a NavChek LOC which I do not need to exercise...thank goodness.
You have expressed your long road to your current FICO achievement and I could not be more happy for you! Next goal FICO 800.
