Who told you applying for a loan would not affect your credit? Every time a hard inquiry is done your scores will decrease. However, 25pts is in excess of how much a score should drop for an inquiry, you are obviously only following non-fico scores if you are seeing this like this happen. Be concerned about your FICO scores, I guarantee that they did not drop 25 pts for 1 inquiry.
