Re: should i even bother?

Hmmm, I think you have a shot. I am proof that inquirys are overated. As long as your report has no serious derogs you will be fine. My experian and Transunion both have a CO on it so the inquiries seem to hurt me there. But with Equifax pullers they seem not to care to much since my report is clean and 716 right now. Just my 2 cents go for it.

Is this 17 total on EX or across all reports?

Dont do it ! The only reason I was denied the Freedom is because I had over 8 inquirys in the past year on my experian. Just wait it out a few more months untill your under 5 for the year.

Good idea by then your  BoA will have aged to 1 1/2- so when you are approved your CL will be higher. :smileywink:
