I got my experian score from the experian website. But myfico equifax and transunion scores are both above 700. I have 12 inquiries listed along with the negatives. Only negatives include a low age for credit (1 year and 4 months) and recently opened accounts (student loans and 3 new credit cards the past three months). Do student loans affect my chances? I have never missed a payment on anything. My revolving credit utilization is only 7%. I just turned 19 years old, and I'm going to be traveling abroad a lot for school. I want at least two more rewards card that will give me good deals.
Student loans doesn't affect your chances. Your AAoA and utilization may pose a problem. Before being recon to get approved, I was denied while having pristine credit and with no recent inquiries and $0 CC balances. I was told by the CSR my risk score was too high. I didn't accept that. I told her I have high FICO scores and she offered to send my app for recon. I got approved for $2000 a day later.
Good luck getting approve with AMEX.

I am only one year older then the OP and I got an instant approval for Amex gold. My AAOA is very low and I had a decent amount of inquiries.
Hear that OP. You may have a chance. The only way to find out is apply. If you get denied ask for a recon immediately.
