No one can answer that question with any certainty because we have no way of seeing your specific situation. It all depends on all of the factors, not just the one wide open question you asked. I can tell you that you need not pay them all off to achieve what you are asking. You only need to reduce you total debt to less than 20% of your total credit limits. You should see a substantial increase in your score within 60 days provided your report is not riddled with late payments and public records hits.
