So close to 700 (:

So exciting news to tell you guys, After Pifing my Capital One card and reporting a zero balance my credit score shoot 30 points to 694! I wanted to get a 3rd credit card soon, but now I'm thinking about gardening my 2 cards. My plan was to open a Credit Union student card to start a relationship with my bank, but now I think I'll wait it out until I'm in the higher 700's to apply and have a better chance of approval. 

 

This was a little update just to keep in touch with the forum, and I thank everyone for all the useful information and really helping me out ALOT (: !
