I've just decided to do the GMAT, and will need to take it in about a month. I know the timeline is a bit tight - how did most people who about preparing, and are there any recommended resources?

I did every single problem in the 2018 OG books (main one and 2 smaller ones) as well as all the new problems in the 2019 book (gmat club has a post highlighting which problems are different). I then did the Manhattan prep book on sentence correction and the probability math sections since I was weak on those, and then went to gmat club’s master list of all math sets and did some more of those on areas I was still wanting to practice.

I read through the lessons as well! I will say though that it was helpful but not thaaaat much, the way the GMAT structures it’s sentence correction has a very different “feel” if you will than any 3rd party from what I can tell

I recognize this is a touchy subject and I’m prepared to be wrong, but for MBA internships at MBB, I’ve noticed (anecdotally) that most of the folks who got offers from my M7 school fall into one of the “URM” demographics. Given that these firms are working harder than ever to hire diverse classes, do they try especially hard to “lock in” those candidates through the internship before they’ve been recruited elsewhere to other firms/industries?

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?
