How long to wait to recheck score/report?

I recently paid off about $30,000 in credit card debit and $8000 student loan. How long should I wait to recheck my report or credit score to see if it raised my score any? Should I expect it to go up a good amount of points?

If you know when the student loan and the credit card(S) report, you should be able to check after the last one has reported.

Chase Sapphire Preferred $17,800; Discover IT $15,000; PenFed Plat Rewards Signature $14,000; AMEX BCE $11,800; AMEX SPG $8,100; Citi Simplicity $10,000; Chase United MileagePlus Explorer $5,000; Chase Ink Classic $3,000; GE Lumber Liquidators $7000; GE Care Credit $2000

if you're in no hurry, wait a full 31 days just to be sure it reported, then pull the reports.
