Re: Student's first cards...

Two years ago when I was first starting out Discover and Citi wouldn't touch me. I applied for student cards and they both said they wanted to see history first. From reading on here it's very much a YMMV situation. After everyone denying me I gave up for a few months and then Cap1 sent me an offer with no AF. That was my first card. As long as the CU approves him I would say just leave it at that for a while and then apply for Discover in 6-12 months.
