Is it safe to climb Mount Fuji the last week of October?

We are 4 students and would like to climb to Mount Fuji the third week of October. We have read conflicting stories about not being safe to do that. Three of us have no previous experience in mountain climbing. Do you think it would be safe for us to go? Any alternatives or suggestions? Thanks !!!!!
