I claimed my sister who is 27 and lives with me since I paid for all her expenses for the year? Will I have to wait until after Feb 15th for my refund?

You cannot get the Earned Income Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit for your adult dependent, so claiming your sister will not delay your refund.

If you are affected by the earned income tax credit (EITC) or the additional child tax credit (ACTC), because of this new tax law to reduce fraud, the IRS is restricted from processing refunds for returns with these credits before February 15th and they say you will probably not receive the refund until February 27th.

It might make a difference if she is considered disabled.

If she had been disabled you might have been able to claim her as a "qualified child."  Since not, xmasbaby's answer is correct. Unless there is some other factor, which I don't think there is.
