The 2 baddies r not paid and they should just fall off by next year. The rehab is an aggrement i made that after 9 on time payments of $50 my student loan goes from negative to a positive line, so within the year this will show positive of at least 6years of good payments for a loan, i have read that after people have finished this program they get about a 100 point increase. 


 

I would definitely wait for applying right now, especially if you are looking at an increase in score in 5 months. I would wait to see what that does. In the mean time, maybe you could work on a pay for delete on those two baddies, assuming it is affordable.

 


See i don't really want to go threw the hassle of dealing with those collectors for $169 and $1001 this late when literally they should fall off within the year and i even have the rahab that will take less than a year to totally finish. Also the BOA will still stay there even if i pay these collectors from what i hear.

I would rather take this money and add it to the cap1 card or take out another secured loan from a different credit union.


I agree with adding extra funds to your secured line since you already have that account. It will look prettier when you do get prime cards. Also after the rehab is over you will be down to those two collections. I would let that happen and then apply for Chase Freedom since you bank with them. You might have to recon and get a low limit but when those last two things fall off next year you can ask for a cli with hardpull. I would not apply for anything for at least six months. Are you eligible to get into NFCU?

NFCU= Navy Federal Credit Union. You have to be in the military or have a family member that is/was in the military. My credit is poor(500's) and I just recently discovered this forums and I am learning a lot. I had never heard of NFCU before, but I read a ton of people having success with them. So i opened a checking/savings, and applied for the nrewards card, and was magically approved for $500 unsecured. I was also recently approved for an unsecured capital one card for $500(I also have a $200 secured with them, and a $500 secured with wells fargo because I bank with them too). I have gotten a million denials left and right and I am up to like 23 inquiries in just 2 months, so I am DONE apping like an idiot!

But, you might have a chance with NFCU, it is worth a shot if you want to take the inq to your credit.
