Scorewatch score raise vs actual?

Just wondering based on the  "Simulate Best Action" on the score simulator if your score changes were inline with the range it predicted after you did what it suggested?

Re: Scorewatch score raise vs actual?

The simulator is more of an encouragement than a set of instructions on how to get to a certain score. I wouldn't take anything it says to heart, as everyone's credit situation is different and the simulator is ultimately giving you a rough estimate. That estimate is usually based on JUST having credit cards that you pay off, and not considering lates or anything else that still hold you in a certain bracket of scores.



Starting Score: EQ: 383 2/2011
Current Score: TU: 644 EQ: 648 EX: 6?? 2/2015
Goal Score: 700
