Re: those with credit scores near or over 720

I'm kind of perplexed, looking at some of these responses, about why my score (EQ FICO) is as "low" as it is. I have 0 baddies, and a 16-year credit history with an AAoA of 6 years. Maybe it's too many recent HPs (4 of them - bleh) and the fact that my utilization was reported at 14% when I pulled the score? (It's not actually 14%, but I pulled it at a time when I had done a balance transfer recently and both the transferred from card and the transferred to card were reporting the balance.)
My score was 732, but that seems kind of low, considering. I do have a lot of student loans - all current, some in deferment, but I didn't think that would make a huge difference.
Starting Score: 732 (EQ)
Current Score: 782! (EQ - 4/12/13); 748 (TU - 5/21/12); 760 (EX - 4/16/12 AMEX pull)
Original Goal Score: 760+ EQ --> decimated!
New Goal Score: 800+ EQ
