Currently my Ficos are EQ 693 and 748 TU. EQ would be higher if I didn't have a paid tax lien that will be there until 11/2014 unless I do some serious disputing (it's also on EX but not on TU, thank God). I am guessing EQ will probably be at 720 by the end of the year. I will not be apping, as I have 4-5 inqs that will fall off this year. TU, assuming nothing evil happens will probably be around 768-780. Though I think that's wishful thinking. TU is probably my most useless score. All the lenders that matter pull either EX or EQ. TU only gets pulled when I'm doing loan (auto or house) shopping. Otherwise, it would be Merricks or Barclays. (I already have a Barclays card).
We'll see, hopefully.

My 2010 fico score goal is to get into the 700's +
Current Fico score is EQ 658 and EX 663 don't know my TU score
I plan to get a second job so I can pay off all my education loans (hopefully by AUGUST 2010) and pay off my cc! No more opening any new accounts and keeping away from using my 2 CC or if I do use them to make sure I pay them off quickly.
WISH ME LUCK!

1. Goal, 700+, would love 720
2. Equifax 649 (ouch, took a dive), Transunion est 675 (have not purchased for a few months, however CreditKarma is 699).
3. Mainly paydown and no new applications. Few baddies that are left will fall off this year or next. No baddies less than 6 years old. Agressive paydown.

So my credit score has taken a dive!! My hope is to bring it back up to at least 720 by paying off my credit cards and continuing to pay all of my bills on time. But most of all I will remember that just because one thing gets paid off doe not mean that I have to replace it with another debt!!
