Wanted to thank everyone... have been lurking here and similar forums for years and have benefited tremendously from the advice.
This week, the last of the mistakes of my youth fell off my EQ report. Score jumped about 50 points and suddenly I am a High Achiever for perhaps the first time ever !
No special tricks. Just a combination of lucky DV, GW, and letting time pass on the rest.
Don't give up! Worst case, as long as you keep doing the right things, eventually your score will catch up.
