Last thursday 08/03, I called Texas tech and told them I wasn't coming. Going through some very difficult times. probably not my time to start. so my spot had to be given to someone else. it was the last minute. Congrats, if you were that person, who got pulled off the waiting list. Am sorry that you had so little time to prepare since orientation started on Monday 08/07. I wish i had known much earlier that I will not make. I didn't get any deferment. I may have to reapply next here. hopefully, I can take care of all my trouble by then.
