Why did my score drop so much?
I just got through paying off my student loans. I've been doing auto pay for 5 or more years so not late pays. As soon as it was paid off and reported as such, my score dropped from 730's to 650's. WHY? Nothing else changed! Want (need) to get a car (driving a 16 year old one) but scared to death to face the credit inquiry and high interest rates. Really ticked about this one. No other late payments.
