Score dropped significantly on Equifax?!
Currently out of no where my Equifax score dropped significantly while Experian stayed the same. No major change has happened for it to do so. The only thing I can think of is my Student Loan debt that I've been paying on has been deferred. The deferment was not by my choice however. I recently started back in school and the Student Loan company automatically deffered me since I am a student again. I wanted to keep paying (which I actually still plan on doing so.) My question is can a deferment effect your score?! Even if it's not by choice? Why am I being punished for going to school?!
