So does it depend on what company pulls the credit report because my mid score is from Transunion.  That sucks because that's my lowest score and I'll really have to bring my score up alot.

It doesn't matter which report is the mid-score. Your lender will pull the report from their system and they will go off of the mid-score from their system. Have you spoken to a lender or are you in the preparation phase?

Re: Almost there I can taste it!!!

Yes, I had a lender pull my credit and my scores where Experian 623, Transunion 580 and Equifax 610.  The only thing I can think of that's pulling that score down is a collection for $250 for a ticket.  I wonder if I can get them to remove it if I do a PFD would it bring my score up.  I need to make sure they weren't included in my Chapter 13 before I call them and even think about paying.

@ ProudMomof5

 If that's the case then you're mid score would be 610 with equifax, you're low score would be 580 and you're high score would be 623.

Re: Almost there I can taste it!!!

Congrats on getting the points! I was in the same boat and what increased my score in less than a month was 1) Time (a few baddies aged to 4 years) and 2)paying my 2 CCs to under $10/each. I tried the 1 card at zero, other at $10, but Idk, that's what worked for me
