am I ready to app for prime cards?

Ok. I have 696 EQ, 681 EX, 660 TU. Aaoa is 6yrs and 5 months. Util is 34%. Inquiries are 2 EX, 0 EQ, 3 TU. One baddie, medical collection that's scheduled to fall off at the end of 2013. I had lates on 3 accounts back in late 2009. I have been current on all accounts since. I have 2 bankamericards with 2500 limit each, discover with 3000 limit, 2 capitalone with 750 and 900, Mid-America with 1600. So can I app again or garden the cards I have? Most of these cards are sub-prone except for the discover. What do you think?

I would suggest trying to get your uti down. You may be able to squeeze out a few more points. If you can get the collection removed your scores will probably get up to the 700s.


Starting Score: EX: 575 (PSECU 5/2/12) TU: 582 (3/6/12) EQ: 664 (4/27/12)
