I have also read that to increase your FICO score you should have small debt-to-credit ratios on your credit cards.I am paying off about $10,000 worth of debt and I'm not sure which way will help my FICO score most:1) paying off the highest interest-bearing cards while the lower interest-bearing cards are still almost maxed out leaving me a high debt-to-credit ratio on those cards, or2) putting payments toward all credit cards (and not paying off largest interest-bearing cards) to reduce my debt-to-credit ratioSuggestions? Advice? Thanks in advance for any help!Michele
