It dropped into the low 700s so I took a hit. Amazing how much utilization impacts score.

Oh yeah!  

 

Congrats on paying them back down - sounds like you had a high utilization for just a short time.  Keep us posted on your score changes.

I know it will drop my utilization but I'm wondering the score effect it will have?


What was the utilization before the pay down and what will it be now?

 

 


+1

 

This infomation could help us give you a general-ish idea, of what you might expect to see scorewise.

 

And do you know your current EQ FICO?

 

I assume the score you have in your siggy is outdated?

 

ETA: Super Congrats, that is an amazing amount to pay down at once, great job!!
