New Card = 10 Point Drop. Rebound imminent?

My TU just updated with my new HSBC card. One of the negs on my report was that I didn't have a lot of established accounts (on TU I only show a 10 year Citi and a 2 year Discover).

My score had already dropped about 15 points because my Tax Lien dropped, now I got hit with 10 points for new card.

Assuming I pay well for say 6 months, can I expect a significant rebound?

nycc2, imo yes you can expect your scores to rise, as time goes by. For sure.

How much is anyone's guess, as YMMV.
