I went from 660 score to around 760+ over the past year.  Lowering utilization, paying off CCs, and limiting credit inquiries helped tremendously.

i am hoping for 100-125 points within 12 months...all baddies will drop between august '07 and january '08, and the new accounts that i just opened will be a year old.  i am now 657 ex, 641 tu and 590 eq.  i figure i will drop in the next couple of months due to 4 new cc's that i added to lower my ut. 
 
my fako's are as follows:
 
             613            621              611
