Re: consolidating debt makes your score low?

I want to pay off all my debt but no bank company will approve my loan like personal loan they deny it because of my credit score. Im consolidating some of my credit card debt.  I dont have a mortgage and auto loan. I have loan in the bank but my husband is my co-signer. I dont know what is the other idea for getting a loan. i need advice.

You should never apply for credit without knowing your scores. That is your next step.
