Re: Guestimate of score due to new CC

How many lines of credit do you currently have and what is your current AAoA?

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Re: Guestimate of score due to new CC

It would be extremely difficult to guess any score change since the actual scoring model is not publicly available. If that is your only inq and your AAoA remains about the same, dont expect much of a change. Even if it does dip, your score will improve within 6 months.

Re: Guestimate of score due to new CC

I opened a new cc  with AAOA of 12 yrs, and TU dropped 16 points. (Also new car loan two months before that), for total of 3 inquiries in about 20 months.
