Should apply now or wait till next week?

680 Eq fico score from myfico. I'm overall 11% util, but I have one card at 95% I paid a day too late last month. It should report as zero around the 15th of this month. But I recently refinanced my house, and I have a feeling that is going to show up on my credit report on Monday. I have no idea what that new account will do to my score. Should I roll the dice and hope the one credit card reports the zero balance before the mortgage reports? or should I apply now? The overall util is 11%. All my other accounts are 0.

I would wait, 95% util. on one card is too high for an app.

Wait, having one card maxed out is almost guaranteed to be an instant denial.

I didn't want to risk a new balance being reported, and I applied over the weekend. I had great sucess on my app spree. I started another thread about it.

Can the lender do a mid cycle report? I know us cutting it close but its worth a try
