If it is your only installment loan, and it sounds like it is, your score may go down.

I think you should get a couple more revolving accounts.

There are no guarantees of course, and the cleaner your reports the better, but you could try a secured card from BoA, Citi, or National City, and you might be able to get a Target or Macy's card.
