Just wanted to brag a litte! I finally made it into the 700's!!!! from a 495 to a 705!!! It feels so amazing! I was able to secure a 1.49% loan for a new car. I think schools need to do a better job preparing our kids on finances and credit. For the first time in my 30+ years I can finally say... I have good credit! Thanks MyFico!

Congrats!!! I definitely agree. I am a Senior Accounting major in college and so much that I've learned through trial and error. We create spending monsters because we don't educate, we teach instantaneous gratification through materialistic wealth. Sad to say, I found myself in BK because of a lack of knowledge of finances. Now on the road to recovery, I aim to help more people learn to save their money and learn to use credit wisely and to live as debt free as possible..
Cant wait to see 700!!!!
