I would think the end of October is fine. My first interview was in the first week of October, I had four scheduled that month. You could always schedule them to start later if possible? Sometimes you don't get a wide option of dates, but I've always gotten my first choice of dates with interview outside of three occasions. Once again, that's highly variable though.
