|Your FICO® score has gone from 796 to 801|
|Your TransUnion score has gone from 796 on 7/2/2011 to 801 on 9/30/2011 .|
|Some of the reason for this change:|
I am 40 years old. I have three credit cards. The oldest AMEX just turned 20 years old a few months ago. The other two are just a few years old. I also have ten years of student loans used for a PhD. They are in 'in-school' deferment status for another year. That's all, no car loan, no mortgage.
