Re: Fico

It's subject to what is on your report now, history, etc. There are a ton of variables that some in to play with how the FICO score is calculated. Do you mind sharing some of your details?

 

Utilization of revolving credit plays a huge part along with payment history. These 2 things account for 65% of your score (30% and 35%) respectively.


Starting Score: EQ 511 TU 552 EX 545 8/29/2012
Current Score: TU 712|EQ 695|EXP 723 (FICO)
What's in my wallet? Cap1 PLAT AU $4.25k; Cap1 QS AU $2k; NFCU Siggy $45k; $5k WalMart MC; CFNA Firestone $1.8k; Amazon $3k; NFCU Cash Rewards $22K; AMEX BCE $21k; NavCheck $15k; Lowe's $10k; Citi DP $7.7k; AMEX ED $8.5k; Chase Freedom $4.5k
Goal Score: 700 across the board.

Re: Fico

Soooo, many factors here.  Depends on what's in your file, whether you are letting stuff age off or taking affirmative action to try to get things removed, the type of action you take, who you are dealing with, etc.   

 

If you'd like to post some more details about what's in your file I'm sure folks will chime in with suggestions.  :smileyhappy: 



Starting Score: TU:584 | EQ 584
Current Score: TU FICO: 711 | EQ FICO 713 | EX (USAA FAKO) 779
