Credit rating and credit score question
45 days ago my student loan balance dropped from $45,000 to $2,000 after making a $43,000 payment. The new loan balance has been updated in my credit report. Since then my credit rating actuallly fell. Why?
Would this also mean my credit score dropped after basically paying off my student loan?
Makes no sense.
Also there has been no other changes in my credit history.
