I will be at 3 months on the 28th. Should I wait until then to try for a cli? Should I do it on the website or over the phone?

I would wait until the 28th. It probably does not matter if it was phone or online but I'm not sure.

I think you have to wait 6 months now for CLI requests at Navy, but maybe that only applies to credit cards?

Given your struggles to make this happen I would suggest you worry less about a few months of high utilization and focus more about paying the debt off ASAP.  That will fix any credit hits the fastest way possible.  VMMO.

+1, don't worry about the "TEMPORARY" hit to the scores as they will bounce back after 50% of util or <, 30% interest is your biggest concern- just say NO to 1Main.

Re: approved by one main - any other options?

So I applied for a personal loan for $5000 and to my surprise after a 24 hour review I was approved. The interest rate is 18%. I don't know yet what it is for the line if credit. I am probably better off using the loan and not touching the line of credit so my utilization goes down right?

True but it is a 60 month loan and I plan on paying it off way early.
