If I make a PR today (or before 1st October), will it count?

From the faq:

To win a shirt, you must sign up on the Hacktoberfest site and make four pull requests on GitHub by October 31st. Pull requests do not have to be merged and accepted. As long as they’ve been opened and marked as ready-for-review between the beginning of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count toward a free T-shirt.

So I think no.

Yeah.
Like how much time I have to win a T-shirt? Only the first 75000 to make 4 PR's win a T-shirt so how fast do the spots fill up? In like 20 days or 15 days or 10 days?

I'm not sure about that. Last year I finished around october 25th or so, but I think they didn't have a limit back then. They mentioned that they will send out more info on that tough.
