I honestly don't know what voodoo amex uses for approvals. I just got approved for the $500 limit Zync with a cteditkarma fako of 599 and 71% uti. I'm DEFINITELY not complaining tho!
FAKO's are useless, creditkarma is only good for report tracking, I got a 6 pts boost in my fako for paying off my 200 CL target card balance was $80. Reason for the improvment my "monthly payment decreased $25" My Credit Karma score was 640 and my EX Fico was around 710 (AMEX Pull), TU Fico (Walmart) was 720. Ignore the score use to figure out UTL, AAoA and when Credit Cards report and to watch baddies.

Just approved for the Amex BCE after a succesful recon! (Already a member) I'm not exactly sure what my scores are, but I know all of my credit reports have the same info on them. My EQ is about 715ish, so I would say my EX is lower 700's or a little below due to a bunch of inquiries.
