    Apple doesn't require you submit proof of actually being a student before you buy. They may audit some of their student sales and ask for proof then, but by that time you should comfortably be a student. Even if you aren't, I'm sure you can explain your situation and they'll understand.

    you don't even need to be a student, according to the website all you need is a letter of acceptance from any college or university and since you are starting in September you should already have the requisite documents to purchase a new computer!

    They don't check. Not like the swat team is going to come knocking on your door.

    You are fine as long as you have a letter of acceptance from any college, which means you can be tricky and use a letter from a college you are not going to.
