Is September a bit late to take the DAT?

I have changed my DAT date twice already and I'm debating whether or not to do it again.

If I decide to take the DAT the first weekend in September am I pushing my chances for acceptance? Everyone is telling me to apply as early as possible and it's just not happening for me.

I'm guessing it takes about a month (average) for my DAT scores to come through and about the same for my application to the schools I'm applying to.

The upcoming date for my DAT is August 5th.

What do you guys think? Or am I just freaking out? I have that TopScore program and I keep on getting 18's on my Biology and that is really making me think twice about changing the date.
