Is fair credit score good for Discover it Student?
Hello. I am new to Credit Karma and new to credit card as well. I am currently a college student. Since I am international student, I just got my ssn a few month ago. I made a stupid mistake, that I applied for chase freedom and discover it student right after I received my ssn card, and the consequences should be obvious, I got denied due to short of credit history. Then I realized my mistake, so I applied for a student credit card in my university credit union, and got approved for $1000. I have 694 for Transunion credit and 709 for Equifax credit now. I am thinking to apply for discover it student again next March since it is really a good card. Because there are four more months to go, I assume the credit score could be up a little bit as well. My only concern is the three hard pulls made by banks by now. But after I got the discover, I will not apply for any credit cards for the entire year. Will it be a good idea to apply for discover next March?
