A) Wants to stay in California B) Doesn't like to fly C) Heard some really nasty things about the panel/group interview D) I am holding a few OOS acceptances, but they are not on NW's level. E) Wrote a really awful secondary for NW. Their secondary was the first I sent out, and it shows. F) Going on overseas vacation very soon in January, and I need money. NW stops interviewing at the end of January. Kinda same thing with Dartmouth--the lady told me West Coasters usually take 2-3 days traveling.
