I can see that. Although, I would still take Morningside Heights over West Philly, Durham, New Haven and Hyde Park fo sho. There are also no NYU undergrads in Morningside Heights. But without a doubt I would say general location of NYU is a plus over columbia hands down.
i just checked out your LSN and see that you withdrew from NYU- congrats on making the decision! and good luck with Harvard. boy, am I jealous of your options .
