Student loans made me drop 56 points?!
Two days ago, I checked my credit score and noticed it dropped 3 points. My student loan account is the reason apparently. A few months back, I applied for the pay as you can program (unemployed for medical reasons). So I pay what I can every month. So I called them to see what was going on and the application for the never got processed. So she said they would process it yesterday. I checked my score again, I went down 56 points?! Why is that???
