Re: My score jumb back

There are other factors that could be affecting your fico score in addition to the inquiries. So here is something to consider:

1.    Inquiries will affect the score for only the first month.  Even though they stay on your credit report for two years they have no impact once the inquiry has been reported for 13 months.

2.    New account(s) opened within the last 12 months

3.   A new account open with a high balance

4.   Installment trade lines (auto loans, student loans, personal loans)-35% of the original balance has not been paid down.

5.   Average age account

6.   Mixes of credit-revolving, installment, mortgage


You can also go to and answer three pages of questions. This will give you a score range based solely on the information to which you have provided.
