While the various non-FICO credit scores are similar to FICO scores in design, score range, and how they're applied in lending decisions (if they're used in lending decisions), there really is no formula or rule of thumb that can be applied in any reliable manner that will give you a good idea of just how far off the score is from a true FICO score.
In a past life I served as FICO consumer affairs manager, FICO media spokesman, and myFICO Forums community manager from 2007 to 2012. I'm now freelance writing about credit at CreditCards.com and on my own site, SpeakingOfCredit.com.
