24 inquiries I'd leave it unless you have a balance on a high apr card that you wont be able to pay off anytime soon.

Re: Pre-approval will you kill it?

Your util seems high - is this just due to the holidays? If so and you want the card to pay off a high apr fine. Also, the number of inq's is that for all bureaus? how many in the past 12 mos?
