It really will come down to what else is on your report. There is no way to really predict. Everyone seems to have different results.

If the rest of the OP's credit profile were messy the cards would've been CLD'ed I think.

Re: Paying down utilization

I think you will have a significant increase, but I imagine those lates are still leaving a pretty big mark since they are only about 6 months old. Congrats on paying down that large of a chunk of utlization though!
