You have an EQ FICO score of 785 with no accounts open? ZERO accounts? When did you apply for this CITI card. Figures they pulled EQ, they seem to do that a lot. Also, which card did you get?

It's refreshing to see young folks such as yourself taking an interest in personal finance and learning to use credit responsibly. Tell your college friends to come here, we would love to help them out especially with student loan questions and responsible CC usage. Maybe I can share a war story or two about my college days at UT (university of Texas). GL to you!
