120 point jump in one month?
Greetings! From the beginning of January CK listed me at 665 which is what my credit report showed when getting a pre approval for a mortgage. Now I am showing 773 as of Feb 2nd. Is this possible? Should I get my hopes up?

Yes. It can happen.

That pre-approval with out incurring the debt is probably what's doing that. 

When you take loan or if you decide not to take it, your score will probably adjust itself back down some. Hopefully it will retain some of that boost. 

Good luck
