Trying to Garden but EQ simulator says my score will increase with cards--

Help!

 

I am desperately trying to get over 700 with EQ which has been my lowest of all of the CB.  I am at 687 with 18% util.  Whats holding my score down are:  1 Paid Judgement which is 4 years old next month.  Three medical collections- 2 paid 1 unpaid all 5 years old.  

 

I currently have AMEX PRG (opened August 2012), Discover (opened August 2012), Lowes (open April 2012), Orchard Bank (June 2011), Barclays (Oct 2011), and Rooms to Go.

 

Question:  What card to apply for that would take me-baddies and all?  Or, someone please  hand me some itch cream.

The simulator is a broken clock. Only use it for general scoring purposes. I wouldn't trust it on anything precise.

I wish it could simulate paying off an individual card.
