I wouldn't try to open the GECRB cards just yet, I'd go ahead and get another secured card. That way you'd have a couple of revolving accounts that can age. Basically the inquiries will have to age off. They stay on your report for 2 years but only affect your FICO scoring for 1 year. On a side note, some of the FAKO scores factor them in for the full 2 years.
With the others, just send the GWs out. See what the first round does and form a gameplan from there. Good luck!
