Hello all...my question today is how long does it take for your scores to reach your prior actual "number" after you are re-bucketed? For example, my Walmart TU was at 735, and the primary negative factor was my AAoA, which was at 4 months. Later, when my Amex reported with a backdate of 1988, my AAoA went to over 4 years, yet my score went down to 697. This made no sense to me until I read about re-bucketing here on myFICO. Now my Walmart TU is at 708...slowly rising again. So, would a 6-month time frame be about right to recover your numerical "score?" Thanks.

it really depends..... until we know the exact formula of FICO it is impossible to say and its pretty much a YMMV situation.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
