Congratulations Deepa!  This is great news!  You'll love Ann Arbor... It's a
terrific town.  

Cali's loss is DC's gain!  

Best of luck with your move to the Great State of Michigan -- I was just
there this weekend, and can tell you it has much to offer.

> Hello my fellow Californians,
> I would like to share some sad but exciting news with you 
> all. At the end of  June, I was admitted to the University of 
> Michigan Law School, which is ranked as one of the top ten 
> law schools  in the country! I had been waitlisted there and 
> had been really hoping to get in, and I was overjoyed after 
> receiving a phone call from the Dean letting me know that I 
> was admitted! I have committed to attending the U of M in the 
> fall, which means I will be having to leave California at the 
> end of August.
> I'm really excited to be going to such a fantastic school and 
> nervous to be starting this intense program, but sad to be 
> leaving CABS, the NFBC, and all of my friends here at home 
> both in the NFB and without. I have enjoyed so much being a 
> part of this affiliate and being on the CABS board. Our 
> student board has done such an amazing job this year, and I 
> am proud to have been part of such a hard-working, dedicated, 
> and motivated group. I am now ready to pass the presidency on 
> to the next board and president.
> I am planning on working in Washington, D.C. after law school 
> if it works out. I had such an amazing experience there from 
> January to May interning for Senator Dodd on the Hill, and I 
> love DC so much. So I don't know if I will be permanently 
> back in California or not. However, I will still be interning 
> in Cali one summer and maybe doing a Fellowship or something 
> after law school if I can, hopefully for Disability Rights 
> Advocates. So I'm sure I will still be able to attend some 
> state conventions from time to time, and I will of course be 
> seeing many of you at national conventions! I will still be 
> part of the NFBC list for a while, so please stay in touch 
> and get my email if you would like to write every now and then.
> Thank you so much for all the support and love you all have 
> given me in the NFBC and in CABS. I'm going to really miss my 
> California family. Now, I am going to begin preparing for 
> this next chapter of my life!
> Warmly,
> Deepa Goraya
