your score may drop since you will be taking a hard hit as well as lowering your AAoA. also do you have any other credit cards if so paying down your utli should help your score

Have your friend see about joining Navy Fed (if not already a member). They are great and once you have a solid relationship with them you're golden. I had lower 600 FICO when I joined and app'd for one of their credit cards. Was approved for $1,000 unsecured. Couple months later app'd for another card when my score went up and was approved for $5,000. Great customer service as well.
