My credit score dropped 40+ points when my student loans showed up on my credit.
My credit score dropped 40+ points as my student loans showed up on my credit report. I just graduated from college and I will have to start paying back the loans in a few months. Is it possible the student loans are killing my score and is there anything I can do besides pay them off right away since thats not an option?
