Thanks, and congrats to you as well! I'm in shock now that they even approved me at all, let alone for 20,000!!! Also, I've used it once to gas up the Rover!

Re: Pen Fed odds?

OP - sorry they turned you down. I agree with the others here that you need to call and recon. They are very nice people to work with.

 

Be prepaired to send them supporting documentation. Your profile looks very good and I am quite surprised you were turned down!

 

Worth a phone call for sure! Let us know the results.

Sorry to hear it. You can fax them a letter to request to recon for manual review. Your score is much higher than me.  I think you have a good chance to get approved.
