Credit card for student with massive debt
I recently was denied a credit card for the following reasons:
Debt to income ratio exceeds guidelines
income does not meet min requirements

The reason for that is because my source of income is from my federal loans, considering I am still a student.

Are there any credit cards I can apply for and get approval given this situation? Thank you in advance!
