why are you re-recruiting for FT?

Since so many threads popped up about FT recruiting, I'm curious to know what made you guys decide to re-recruit.

I'll go first - my internship is in the greater NYC area but not in the city. I'd prefer to be in the city full time. Culture and location are dealbreakers for me.

-Group I'm going to does an industry I don't like

-Group is in Chicago, think this could hurt PE recruiting

-Group is good but not PJT RSSG level. Again, think this matters for PE recruiting

-If I can jump to PE out of school I will

Not really considering actively recruiting but might be a passive participant. I am at a top group, enjoy my team a lot and am on track to receive an offer so there's only a few groups that are out there for which I would consider accepting an offer. In my mind the only reason I would rerecuit is to go to a shop that's not a sweatshop but then I could potentially be in a group where I don't enjoy working with the people or the pay isn't top of the street or the group isn't at the top of the league tables. So, haven't fully committed to actively re-recruiting.
