Re: Discover It

Is there a reason why you shouldn't apply if you are so interested? Smiley Tongue

Re: Discover It

Wait for your CR to report your new balances and you should see a decent score increase. You should go for it then! I'm not sure if discover is inquiry sensitive, but 5 seems to be okay. Are they all on eq or tu?
