September or December?

Not entirely sure. Read it one way, and the AU issue (and other new FICO scoring) starts in September. Read it another way, and it won't hit until December.
You make the call.

Re: September or December?

MARK GREENE: So the FICO '08 product isn't yet shipping. It ships beginning of December so it could not have had actual impact last quarter.

So, anyone care to elaborate on what Mark Greene meant? I thought the Q&A was confusing, just like Noah did.

It's been mentioned numerous times that the new scoring revisions (such as ignoring AU) will only be incorporated into new scoring models, and will not be added to any current or past models. So if FICO '08 is not being shipped until December, how can the changes (such as AU) be applied in September? Or did Mark Greene get his months mixed up?
