FICO depression

September 22nd, 2005 at 06:49 am

The University that I work for offered a free seminar on managing budgets and credit. It was quite depressing to imagine how low my FICO score probably is at this moment. Although I am excellent at paying bills on time I recently shopped for auto loans for my new car. i didnt realize how much of a hard hit having the various companies looking at my credit would cost my credit score. I think it was 4 or 5. well, i guess i better take the plunge and find out the truth!

    It may not be as bad as you think. If I understand it correctly (no guarantee Smile) if all of the queries are made within a certain time period (2 weeks?) it counts as one "hit" on your credit.

    You mean FICO, right? FICA is social security Smile.
