... is working slowly on your mix of credit types. This gets a little tricky, of course, since every time you apply for new credit it knocks your score down a few points. But once you're up in that heady territory, refining your mix of credit cards vs personal loans vs gas cards vs mortgage vs HELOC, etc. can make the difference. Unfortunately, there's no exact formula to help you. As redcoupe says, it takes time -- and some careful experimentation. RC is right, though. You already qualify for all the best loan rates. From here on out, it's just a matter of pride and gamesmanship.
