Straight out of undergrad you’d probably have issues with a 3.5 GPA but with 4 years experience (assuming it’s good experience) it shouldn’t matter all that much

GPA is used in undergrad screening but I doubt it would disqualify if you have much relevant experience

If I am a current holder of CSP (have been for almost five yrs), is it possible to cancel the card and re-apply to be eligible for the 100k bonus? Also given that the CSP is my only Chase card, my plan was to 1) sign up for a freedom card so I don't lose my points, 2) cancel the CSP, 3) re-apply after a few days. Does this make sense, and if so is there anything I should note such as minimum period between signing up for the freedom and the CSP, or between cancelling/re-applying the CSP?
