How can I fix bad credit due to multiple credit account denials in a short period of time?
After applying to 3 credit cards and getting denied all three times, I now have a very poor credit score. I am a full time student and work a part time job.

Denial itself have no influence on credit scores, your scores dropped was caused by inquiries. Your scores was bad/low before you applied, so you need to focusing on why was it low and not "fix" the denials. Was it low because you don't have credit or you have derogatory accounts, like late payment(s) or charg-off/collections?... If you don't have credit? Most people started out with secured card and work their way up, since you are a student, you can try to obtain a unsecured "student" card like CapOne's Journey or Discover. You can also try to find someone willing to add you as authorized user onto their credit cards, until you can get credit card(s) on your own.
