simple answer is No!

The inquiries don't just go away.  Ch 7 can take up to a year, depending on the court schedule and your lawyer.  after ch 7 your hard inquiries would fall off before your ready to apply for credit again anyway, 

Good Luck

The Bankruptcy filing will not affect items on your credit report.  The hard inquiries will remain for the 2 years from the date of the inquiry.  The derogatories will remain for 7 years from the date they were reported, although, several will make changes as the bankruptcy is approved, although the initial date will remain the same.  The bankruptcy itself as a Chapter 7 will be on your credit report for 10 years.
