Welcome to the forum
Nice portfolio of cards
No one wants to hear it but it's part of the credit game
With 30 INQ's its time to hit the garden and wait on some of those to fall off.
The plus side is your scores are high if all cards are reporting you're a good shape

I would say more than half are from the past year, I rather foolishy thought that it would work like applying for a car loan. If you apply a bunch in a small period of time it would look better. I now know better, the Capital One is my oldest card and my AAoA is 1.75 years. Not great I know but for a credit file that is only 2 in a half years old I think its pretty good. Utilization is around 4%. I am done apping for at least a year as I really want to get in with AMEX
My walmart FICO is 699, my EX is I believe 709 and I am not sure about my TU but I believe its in the 680's
