I took my GMAT in mid Aug and I spent the last couple of weeks researching schools, making a resume and talking to some admission consultants. My original plan was 2 schools in R1 and 4 in R2. Am I too late? I've not started on the essays yet.
You're definitely not too late but you'll have to work hard in the next couple of weeks. I don't know what schools you thought of for R1, but some have a R1 deadline as late as November. Good luck!
