You'd probably have better luck trying to get a secured credit card.  I recommend you visit www.creditcards.org or www.bankrate.com to compare all available cards side-by-side.  Your score will take a small hit when you apply, but as you make payments over time it will increase.  Another option that is often overlooked is a "Credit Builder Loan", which is usually offered by credit unions and is a great way to build up your credit and your score.
