If your current credit accounts are in good standing and your debt-to-credit ratio is low, your credit score won’t drop significantly. Length of credit history makes up only 15% of your credit score. The most important things are payment history (35%) and amounts owed (30%). If you always pay on time and keep your balances low your credit score won’t be affected much.
