Re: New Years Rebuilding Resolution

Good plan! I've got one paid collection I'm working on getting removed from TU. Plan on my Fulton card graduating in Feb and will probably wait a good six months before trying to app for anything else since my current AAOA is only 10 months not including my new Capital One card I was approved for a couple weeks ago. I apped for Citi Forward but have not heard anything back yet but will probably be declined knowing what I know now.

Amex BCP 12,500 - Amazon Chase Signature 10,000 - Discover It 9,000 - Walmart MC 7,500 - Citi Diamond 6,100 - Lowe's 6,000 - Fulton 6,000 - Amazon Store Card 2,000

I think everyone is on the right track for success.  I hope and pray this time I can stay vigilant and continue to pay off debt, SAVE, and not apply for any credit cards no matter how tempting it maybe.  I think that sometimes applying itself is an addiction and not the actual approval of the tem.  At my current age, I have to be completely mature about my credit.  I am no stranger to this forum, but must continue to review post, head advice, and stay on path this time.  I will be graduating from college in a year and half and need to have a great score by then.   Wish everyone luck on their 2013 quest!
