There's several different versions, even of your FICO score.  Orchard may have also used a different score or internal scoring model.  Did the letter specifically say which version they used?

+1. Unless their letter explicitly states that it is a FiCO® score then you can't assume that it is, and therefore it can't really be correlated.
