Thank you all for the wonderful information... I had no idea that AAoA has such a tremendous effect on your FICO score.  Now I'm starting to wonder what the averages are that lenders consider bad.  I'm going to work on figuring my AAoA's up as soon as time permits.  Thank you

I can't answer that but I can tell you that FICO High Achievers (760+ score) have on average an AAoA of 6 to 12 years. You can go here to read more about FICO High Achiever Characteristics.
