Your GMAT is on the lower end of scores considered by your target schools. However, that does not have to be a deal breaker. You are taking the right steps by planning to apply in R1 and visiting campuses. Be sure to highlight experiences where you have used quant skills, particularly those with measurable outcomes. Also, maintain contact with any individuals you meet on your campus visits that may be able to help you navigate the application process. Since you are starting so early, you should be prepared to work on the essays as soon as the questions become available. Also, make sure your LORs are from individuals who can be very specific when discussing your strengths and accomplishments. Best of luck!
