Decided not to wait for fee waivers, and instead took the $85 hit and applied. Feels good to get it out of the way, really want to focus on writing some Why X's now.

I submitted my application on 9/08 and have not gotten a confirmation email yet. Based on LSN data, this is not typical. Should I follow up to make sure it was received?

I wouldn't - if you applied through LSAC, they received it. It hasnt even been 2 weeks yet

Honestly I didn't even think about how it had been less than 2 weeks...the quick turnaround from certain schools and my general impatience is making me insane.

Submitted on the 3rd and still no confirmation. Should I be concerned or am I just being crazy?

Checking in because I like pain and misery - don't think my LSAT went well so think I'll be a splitter (GPA 3.95).

Based on last year, they’ll come shortly after the September LSAT scores release.

I sent mine in without it. I figured getting it in early was worth taking the $80 hit.

I may join you... But C is a reach for me, low chances to get in and low chances to receive money, and I couldn't attend without good money. So idk if I want to put 120$ on that. The only thing that really tempts me is the drop they had this year, -1 median LSAT, -1 75th LSAT and dropped behind Chicago in the ranking. They may use a 172 after all...

I'm in the same boat as you. Only reason I haven't submitted is that they said merit waivers would come mid October in an admissions seminar last month.

When should fee waivers drop for the September LSAT test takers?

Fee waivers haven't dropped for ANYONE yet (I'm a June 2016-er), so your guess is as good as mine.
