As an aside, almost all of the reported ranges are "observed ranges" rather than "model limits".

The traditional FICO, back in the dark ages, was 300-900 IIRC. Now various CC issuers and other score vendors use different ranges, but they almost all still give observed ranges rather than system limits.

For all of them AFAIK the limits are even numbers, typically 250-800, 150-800, 300-900 etc. It is highly improbable to achieve either the bottom or top scores. For many collections scores, rarely disclosed, the ranges are inverse to the application scores more commonly reported.

I know at one point we all griped about too many stickies, but how did this fall off the radar :mellow:

I swear I didn't see it last night as a sticky. This is easily one of my fav threads on the board. Great job by everyone especially Bob and qwerty :clapping:

 

Edit: Ah now I realize why, I didn't see the option to expand the other stickies.

Citi never provides me with a score when i get denied for a cc, so I don't know what that chart is smoking.

FYI, got a Equifax FICO from USAA. I'm guessing it's the BEACON 09 as the range is 300-850, though they don't identify which EQ score it is.

 

I was approved for the card, but still got the disclosure. Perhaps my interest rate is higher.

Got a disclosure from Alliant yesterday for an approved Credit Card.

 

Your Score: 707

 

Source: Equifax

 

Scores range from a low of 400 to a high of 950

 

Nowhere did I see "FICO"

 

I think they use the Vantage Score. They must be the only one.

I don't think so, probably a hybrid. The range of Vantage goes up to 990.

If you get anything higher than an 850 in the range, it's not a FICO score. And anything below 300, it's not a FICO score.

Not necessarily. Some FICO industry options (eg bank card or mortgage enhanced go to 900, and some of the FICO nextgen scores have ranges from 150-950.

 

I need to make a few updates and post a slightly tweaked chart, but there won't be significant changes from my chart:

Not sure if you guys discussed this elsewhere already but did you see that myfico is selling EX FICOs again? It sounds like they are FICO 08.
