I just pulled my scores for the month, and I'm happy to report that I received a 4 point bump on EQ! Over time, the new credit ding will fade more and more. Moving forward!!!

Still here. Decided to focus on paying down SL debt. According to myy current schedule, I'll have paid off 1 loan by December so that I can move the full payment to my biggest loan.
Good luck to you!!! That is an awesome accomplishment to have those paid off!!

I'm new to all of this; including the Garden. My plan is to get pre-approved for a home loan so I'm in the garden and looking for info on everything regarding increasing my scores, saving money, and mortgages.
