Will score improve if collections are removed?
I contacted the collections agency and they finally agreed to remove 5 collections from my credit report. Will I see a nice jump in score? They are about 4 years old and have been paid.

That should be a good increase, but it really depends on the rest of your credit profile. Congratulations!!

I hate to burst your bubble but removing collections doesn't always raise your score. I just removed 3 collections but my score went down 47 points! I am so frustrated!
