Re: need some advice on credit length.

That category includes the overall length of history, your AAoA, length of your oldest revolving, installment, etc., and a couple of other factors if memory serves. It's a smaller part of FICO scoring at 15% of your score.


If you look at your FICO report it'll list on the 2nd and 3rd page items that help and hurt the most. These are ranked in order so you can have a fairly good idea of what hurts/helps the most.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
