A credit score
is a number generally between 300-850, based on a statistical
analysis of a person's credit files. This score represents the credit
worthiness of a person. A credit score is assigned to each individual, to rate
how risky a borrower he or she is--the higher the score, the less
risk the individual poses to creditors. In most cases, your credit score will determine whether you will be
approved for a credit card.
