Removed Authorized user accounts from my credit report. Score FELL by 68 pts
to a 683 on Transunion and to 711 (only 12 pts there) Why such a big fall and such a wide range between the two? How long to get it back up? Geez!

You don't just get points for time.  Those accounts were contributing to your score.  Since they were removed you no longer get their benefit.  That said, accounts where you're an AU aren't always considered anyway so you need to build your own accounts.  Don't just waiti around for your scores to improve.  identiify your deficiencies and work on addressing them.
