October is fine. I took it in November and was fine. The only problem is that some schools have due dates obnoxiously early (Dec 15 and earlier), so I had to call in and pay a fee to get my score early to type it into online applications. It's OK if the official score from ETS arrives after the due date.
Thank you very much for your answer!
Btw, do you know when can I know my score after I take the exam? 30 - 45 days?
