As an example.....I had removed myself as AU b/c this shell card reports right at the limit every month. I gained +22.
I gained 0 for having a collection removed.

i received a 32+ increase by paying my CC down to 0 that was with one reporting
pay all ur cards to 0 with one reporting a 9% balance im guessing you should get at least 30-50 points off the util alone

Thanks for the advice guys.
I'm unable to get the 90 days removed, Nelnet will not budge. Walmart has already removed 1 late and refuse to remove any more. I'm hoping my new Wally account with perfect payment history will outshine the closed one on review.
I will work on paying my balance down. I can get the collection removed but they want to charge me a $10 processing fee for removal, collectors are a bunch of miserable trolls.
