about to pull the trigger and app for my NFCU CC.(OMG) I just wanted to get everyone's input on what there score was at app time and what CL they got with said score at initial approval??  thanks ya'll :smileywink:

started mid 500's. Disputed incorrect items and within a month or two my scores have skyrocketed and continue to do so
EQ: 755 as of 8/2013
TU: 700
Experian(or as I call them, the devil) I have no clue, they haven't released my report
Goal=801 across the board!!! Not too far from this, hoping to garden until Christmas 2013

Re: NFCU score and initial credit line?

Last year, my EQ FICO was between 650 and 675 when I apped w/Navy. They only gave me $2k, while others here with similar scores got much higher CLs. Navy told me that they use an algorithm to determine approval and CLs, so it's much more than your FICO that decided your CL. Also, they definitely give preference to people who bank with them as opposed to just getting a CC w/them.

My TU was 743 but my EQ at the time was about 680 because I had an inaccurate collection.  I let NFCU know that I was currently disputing my EQ and that my TU was a more accurate picture. They pulled TU again after pulling EQ for my credit card app. I was approved for 9,000 with 10.65% apr. I think my AAOA was 2 years with about $50,000 in student loans (deferred) reporting. Income only 40,000 a year.
