Forgive me Lexie09 for I have sinned

I was content to stay until the garden until at least January to help grow my AAoA so I could get in with Chase and Amex.

Unfortunately, I have just had my fall from grace: 2 inquiries as reported by Credit Sesame Smiley Sad

This was due not to to temptation, but to ignorance. I got fed up with jumping through more hoops than a dolphin at sea world to keep my Wells Fargo student account fee-free so I decided to switch to a credit union in my college town. I didn't realize that this would be a hard pull.

I joined yesterday and was feeling great until I woke up this morning and saw the two inquiries: one for joining the account and one from Elan financial (I guess the banker apped me for the Student card without asking… doesn't she know that I'm watching my inquiries?!?)

I'm not too optimistic about my approval chances with 4 INQs on my thin file and about 30% UTIL on my last report (moving back to school and floating higher than normal balances so I'm taking advantage of my 0% APR). I'm just hoping I'll get something so I can at least have a new TL out of the INQ I didn't want.

Oh well. I'm still happy I'm voting with my lone and saying no to Wells Fargo's fees, it's just too bad my principled stand resulted in 2 INQs.

I can already see her shaking her head…

I swear she did! I was happy in the garden!

I guess I'll be in the garden even longer to age these suckers off.
