What should I expect?

[ Edited ]
My current score is low because of four collection account and short credit history (2 1/2 years). I have paid all of my credit cards almost in full this week. I went from having a 87% balance to 3%,
Considering the fact that my current score is 480, how big of an improvement should I see next month when they update?

Re: What should I expect?

If you pulled your reports here, I would use the simulator and see what it predicts.
 
Score increases are hard to predict.
 
If forced to guess, I would believe you might break the 500 mark.
