Student loans just came out of deferment and killed my credit
So my student loans just came out of deferment last month, before that I had a 720 and because it now looks like I just got an additional 6K in debt dumped on me in one month, my credit score tanked to a 640. Is there anything at all I can do to get my score back up? I wasn't happy with the 720 to begin with and I'm sure not happy about a 640. I am disabled and applied for forgiveness but if that is rejected what can I do?
