it's hard to say

you don't give any particulars as to what is on your CR or what reasons you have a "poor score".  Wish i could tell you what would work for you. 

best advise i can give you is to spend a little time on credit forums like CK,  Credit.about.com   Creditinfocenter.com  and Wiki How.com/credit   Once you have an understanding of how your credit works you'll have a better idea of what you need to do to fix it.  I believe you could probably raise your score 150 points in a year if you are diligent and make the effort.  I did.

Good luck
