Seeking to get a TN Visa but in 2004 was under parents L1 Visa and got denied I-485. Will that deny me a TN at the border??

Asked 11 months ago - Hollywood, FL

Came to USA under L2 in 2001 until 2008. Then switched to a F-1 Visa and last month came back to Canada. Got a job offer in the States and want to return under TN Visa. Will I get denied at the border because I showed intent to stay in the past and have resided in the states from 2001-2013 doing schooling?
