GW? Or just leave it alone?

I have an old student loan TL on all 3 reports.  It was late one time, in 09/2006.  On both EQ and EX it is appearing as a potentially negative item.  I'm conflicted between asking for the GW since it's being considered a negative - or leaving it alone since it's so old and will be gone in under a year anyway.  Advice?

My opinion?  Leave it.  It's not hurting anything.  It's a minor derog that lost it's sting years ago.  It will fall off in a few months.,  Lates stay on for 7 years from their respective dates, there is no +180 days for them.  This is a positive TL that's old and adding to your AAoA.  You'd risk the chance of having the TL deleted.

Thanks for the input!  I think I'll let it sit for the time being, and keep working on the more damaging stuff!
