Here's the problem: Every time a lender pulls your credit history, your score lowers. If you have a credit score that is not the best and you apply for a loan, your credit score will get worse. I would like to know what credit scores are getting approved. If people could post what their credit score is, who their lender is and if they got approved or not, I'd appreciate it. That way people can see if they will get approved or not and not risk hurting their credit. Further, I think that banks should have grids like law schools do with LSAT scores and GPAs so that one could gage his or her chances of getting a loan at a certain bank. That would be awesome. I have a 653 score and I am looking at Access Group, so if anyone has any info on Access Group, I'd particularly appreciate it. Thanks.
