High credit score and collections...
I have a 761 credit karma score and a fico score of 727. But, I have two collections. Why is not bringing my score down more?

Why?  You certainly DO NOT want your score to drop.  Just work on getting [the collections paid off right away.

I agree that I of course do not want my score to drop, but shouldn't they have dropped more a few points.  My score took a small dip, 12 points, but has rebounded above where it was before the collections.

Just wondering if anybody else has dealt with this.
