Are all scores in the same tier, equal?
To keep things simple, let's say you're considered to have fair credit with a credit score from 620 - 680. Is a person with a 621 score really viewed the same as someone with a 679 score? If not, how are credit scores viewed within the same tier?

They are not viewed by tiers by lenders, lenders will go off of your actual score number to determine your eligibility and rates. Remember, there are many different types of credit scores and versions. You get Vantage scores here, but most lenders use a version of FICO scores.
