Was your degree First or Second Class? You are competitive for Smith, Smeal and Katz. Two months is tight so begin ASAP. There is considerable information on GMAT Club and other websites about the essay writing process. The schools themselves have information about financial support.

Best of luck,

Schools will consider you. But you might consider waiting a year, especially because your GMAT score is lower. Spend the time trying to increase your GMAT score, involving yourself more in the community, etc.

Best of luck,
