I say try it, if they say no, then try again in 6 months or so when some of your inquires fall off and hopefully some of your existing debt will be lower. If you don't want to risk the hard pull, then just wait a few months. It could go either way, IMO.

It's worth giving it a go. The advice others are saying make sense. If you don't get it right off the bat, you can always call the recon line. The worst you will get is a no.
