How would you all vote?

I do not entertain hypotheticals. The world as it is, is vexing enough.

An applicant with numbers sufficient to earn a small scholarship from NYU should have offers from lower ranked schools.

It's no hypo but my situation.

OP got in with 168/3.87, 158 on last administration.

I'm in a similar situation (i.e., numerically unqualified to have been admitted in the first place), except unlike OP I couldn't use $150,000 from Michigan (the only peer to NYU among Cornell and Northwestern) to force NYU to raise to $90,000--which is what I recommend that OP tries to do.

So you're telling me that you are in at NYU with no/insignificant $ and nowhere else?

Not sure what you mean by peer here (Michigan is peer of NYU but Cornell isn't? Is that what you're saying?). Either way 90K at NYU wouldn't be worth passing on 150K+ at these lower T14s. All those schools are totally sufficient for the NYC big law thing, no use spending like 100K more for the same result.

Tried to appeal and use all those offers to get more $, but to no avail....

My problem consists of not loving the climate/culture of northwestern, Michigan placing a bit lower in terms of big law, and ithica literally being pretty terrible and a depressing place to be...

Yeah no going to NYU would be an objectively terrible decision.

Where else did you apply? How do you not have acceptances at lower schools?

You should go to Michigan, then.

As I'd mentioned above, Michigan (and Berkeley) is peer to NYU (if you average each school's peer assessment scores over the last eight years), and you'd have the same sort of strong biglaw and PI placement at Michigan that you'd enjoy at NYU.

Of all the numbers you could possibly look at, why would peer assessment score be the most important one?
