Asking for help fellow ficoer's. I was at 788 in Equifax for a while with AAoA at 5.7, oldest account 15 years, UTI less than 1% and no negatives at all. So I applied for Discover IT and approved but the account hasn't shown up yet, but only the INQ which stands at 3. I recently paid off a loan which brought my revolving accounts down to 2 ( was previously getting negative indicators because I had 3). Long story short (too late I know) but now my EQ FICO is 762.I'm deploying for the next 7 months so its not huge but plan on buying a home when I return and want the best rates. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what happened?

was it a new auto loan?
maybe the drop in aaoa from the discover?
over times it will grow again.
even with a 750 you can get the best rates i believe.

The INQ was for a new Discover CC, the INQ showed up but account hasn't hot yet so I'm very curious. I know its greedy to nit-pic about such things but I am blown away by the real FICO score loss

Inq usually shows up first. Don't know that it would cost you 26 points though. You sure nothing else is going on?
