Re: can applying for a credit card raise a credit score?
Agreed with all.... Ime, as long as you don't open more than a few cards at once, and significantly reducing util by credit line expansion.. Your score can shoot up!!!

I remem when I got my first $3,000 limit, my util dropped a lot and score when from 640-670'ish!!
