I don't have any super-secret sources, but I agree with Mike's bottom line. The LSN numbers show NYU accepting an absolute boatload of people this year; over 50% more than Columbia and almost as many as GULC which is a much bigger school. Plus yield will be high, due to NYU's jump to #4/tie in the rankings, publicity over the new faculty acquisitions, and the continued improvement in QOL in NYC. Put that all together and they prolly won't have to go to the WL to form the incoming class. The only WL activity will prolly be to replace people who drop out of the class once formed. That'll only occur if H, Y, S and possibly Columbia pull people off THEIR waitlists. And it may not even happen then, since my guess is that NYU is actually oversubscribed and won't need to replace those that get grabbed by HYSC.
