When I obtained my FICO score the report gave my some key factors affecting my score and these were:The length of time your accounts have been established is relatively short.I do have a few revolving accounts and student loans that have a current status of TOO NEW TO RATE. Are these negatively affecting my credit score and if so is there anything I can do?Second a few years ago I made the mistake of closing most of my credit cards that had a $0 balance. In doing some reading everybody recomments not to close any accounts, and if you do so it can have a negative impact on the credit score. Is there anything I can do with the closed revolving accounts to improve my credit score? Can I reopen them?Any help is appreciated.Thanks in advance.
