My dog ended up having to have surgery while visiting my sister, he had several bowel obstructions. I applied for care credit on 12/8 expecting to get denied. My TU fico was 598 and EQ fico 497. Well my instant denial showed my EQ to be higher

|Your credit score: 557|

Then yesterday i got a score watch alert because my fall student loans posted
|Your FICO® score has gone up to 504 on December 9, 2011.|
I knew this was common with the different versions of TU available but I was not aware of anything with EQ, is this common?

Well, it does not say FICO anywhere, but it does list the scoring range as 300-850 which is the FICO scoring range.
Maybe a MyFico expert will chime in with more info.
Best of Luck!!

EQ has a beacon 9.0 version. The EQ version here is the beacon 5.0.
