Yes. I didn't start out with Discover, but the Citi Forward card for students, which is now the Thank You Preferred for students. If you can prove that you're in college, you can also easily get that card as a starting point. I started out with $1k and look at my profile now.
If none of those work, there's also CapOne Journey which also isn't bad to start with (it's PCable to a Quicksilver after a few months) and if that doesn't work, secured cards are the way to go. BoA also offers one that can unsecure relatively quickly compared to others for example.
Macy's TLs (21k), Lowes (17k), CSP (10k), Sam's Club (10k), Nordstrom (5k), AARP (4.2k), Freedom (3k), Discover (1.5k), Quicksilver (2k), BoA (3k), Barclaycard Arrival (2.5k), Amazon Store (6k), Paypal (4.9k), Sam's Club MC (3.6k), Walmart MC (1.2k)
