Holding steady at:
I really want that last five points!
Forget the 5 points your score currently is very impressive!!! CONGRATS!!
Thanks, LS and everyone else. At this point in life, I don't worry so much about credit lines, CLI's etc. It's ALL about the score with me. It stems from my obsession to get the highest possible score, which stems from my obsession to get a 4.0 in college years ago, which I did! To me, it's ALL about the score. I NEED that 5 points like others need new TL's or CLI's. I constantly tweak with letting balances report (or not) and I'll get that 850 some day. 850 is possible with TU08, but not with any of the 04 models. From what I've read elsewhere, 818 (I'm currently at 817) is the max you can get from the EQ Beacon 5 score (Myfico), 842 is the max you can get with Experian's version II, and it's 830 something for the antique TU98 score (Myfico). So, my quest continues....

Holding steady at 683 for the 3rd month in a row. Really wish I could see my experian score, since my last baddie has fallen off of there, but my reporting util is 14% right now, so it wouldn't be my "maximum" score.
