Fico simulator question.

How do I go about using the simulator without getting a brand new score.  For one reason or another it tells me my score is over 30 days old so it won't let me "play" with the simulator.  I signed up and paid a couple months ago for the whole year.

Re: Fico simulator question.

How accurate, would you say, is this simulator?  I mean, is the range they give pretty much in the ballpark?
 
I'm probably about a month out from ordering the Suze product, as late July or early August, I want to see where my 3 scores are at, as well as updated CRs.  Doesn't it also offer a simulator?  Does her simulator offer more features?
 
Thanks.

Whenever I used them they were amazingly generous in what they promised, and waaaaaaay off the mark  Smiley Sad

Re: Fico simulator question.

Lower end of the range is to be expected. You won't go from 700 to 800 in 24 months just by paying all your bills on time. It would be nice though.
