Hard pulls stay on your CR for 2 years, however FICO only includes them in your scoring for 1 year. Most creditors will only look at the ones in the past year also, I've never seen anyone denied for inquiries over a year old.
How about 8 inquiries (not by me) over a 2 wk period? Man, that has got to hurt!
Anyway to get these off? And how much do you think these 8 inquiries are worth?
