What about the rest of the cards mentioned on the previous page? Do I have a shot of qualifying for any if those? Should I wait till next semester for some of these cards. Basically I just need a plan of action...lol.
You can update CK yourself by clicking "update now". So hopefully your new statement will be reflected on Monday or Tuesday next week.
As for the rest of your cards
Amex Blue Cash Everyday - AMEX Revolver. Shouldn't be terribly hard to get, but it might be risky with 6 months of credit history and a $12k income and only 1 credit card account. I would wait on this one if I were you. Perhaps next year?
Citi Forward (student or regular version) - Go for the student version, you'll get it.
Discover More - Go for the student version, you'll get it.
Chase Freedom - Heard mixed things about approval for this. I have a co worker who has absolutely NO credit history and got approved with a $500 limit. I think you have a shot with this one.
Chase Disney card - I haven't heard very much about this card at all. There may be a few threads about this on myfico, but I haven't read any recently.
Chase Sapphire Preferred - Might be a little difficult for you to get at the moment. Try this when you have a couple years of history and a higher income.
Amex Green - Potential shot, but I would apply for the BCE instead of the Green.
Amex Gold - Nothing is impossible, but approval chances will be slim with a 6 month history.
Don't go too crazy and app for all of these at once lol! Credit building takes a lot of patience...I waited three years before applying for my second credit card.
AMEX BCE ($20,000), Citi Forward ($6,800), Discover IT ($5,250), BoA Travel Rewards ($1,800)
