I successfully used acpuncture to induce with ds. It was just a week before my due date and my water had already broken though labor wasn't progressing, so I don't know anything about how early. I would find a practitioner who is experienced with pregnant mamas (mine worked with my mw) and discuss it with them. As much as school starting seems like a pressing date, it will wait, there are ways.
