Sudden 68 point drop in score?
I suddenly had a 68 point drop in my credit score after consolidating federal student loans. Anyone know why this happened and how to fix it? Nothing else has changed.

Same Here!

I noticed a drop from 767 to 733 overnight.  But the difference is, I have NOTHING changed in my account

NOTHING.

No credit card utilization changes, no new accounts, no closed accounts, no nothing.  All cards paid on time for the past 20 years.  What happened there?
