10K - TU was 691, EQ was low (630ish).  I commented on the app about EQ being an issue.  They pulled TU and approved me.

I always thought 0% utility resulted in a score decrease?

thats true and while the score comparision is ymmv but in the OP's case most instances where an app with nfcu is submitted and goes to review (3-5 day message) and a lender sees that I dont think it matters at all.  If anything it should look better cause you are presenting yourself with zero debt
