I got approved as a student with no employment, and a little over a year of total CRA. Lots of HPs. So I would say it is easy to get, although I only got the Platinum Mastercard version, not the World, still the same rewards though.

1st Financial Bank Platinum Student Visa, $500 CL, Open Since 3/2012
Citi Forward Student Visa, $6k CL, Open Since 10/2012

SallieMae Rewards Barclay Mastercard, $2.5k CL, Open Since 4/2013
Jointly Owned Cards (co-owner with mom, not AU, used and paid only by me):

Thanks. This will be one of my hit list cards later this year. I might just end up using the rewards as a payment towards my student loan.
