You need to read up in the "Credit Card" forum here. You must learn how to properly use and pay your credit cards to help increase your scores. With proper management of your credit cards your scores should be significantly higher by April.
Don't get anymore cards or other credit until your mortgage closes!!!! You need at least 6 months from getting new credit and applying for a mortgage without raising lender's concerns.
You did really well getting these new cards. They will benefit you in the long run.
