Challenge accepted! (Though I noticed there isn't a 2012 thread yet)!
I am absolutley convinced that one can hit 720FICOs w/ the BK reporting... it's my goal to do this by the end of 2012... we'll see!
As a side note, I'm also convinced one can get an AMEX with a BK on the CR that's <7 years old. (People seem to have no problem once it's been more than 7 years, despite that it reports for 10, assuming 7 years of solid history since the BK). This may prove impossible, but I'm up to the challenge and accept it as well!
To hit these goals, I'm going to stick w/ my plan of <10% util across the board, applying for a new tradeline every 6 mo, and working every tool in the bag that my credit union offers me.
Love these forums!
