Re: What is easier/better?

i guess my question is since my scores are higher than her and i have 16months paid 100% with auto loan, aaoa is 7months vs her 2 cc and aaoa of 2 months. does she make it harder for me if i do joint application.

Honestly? For someone with that many new cards I would say to stop apping for anything, and garden for a while.Neither of you have an AAOA even over a year. Is there some reason you have to app for something now?
