Other than schools ranked above NYU (HYSCC) what other schools' scholarships can be used to negotiate with NYU? Thanks!

There isn't a published list where schools consider others to be peers, if that's what you're looking for here. Negotiating scholarships is a much more fluid process than you might realize. For instance, NYU may consider a full ride at WUSTL in giving some aid to an applicant, or they could turn up their noses at it, depending on how the class is being formed. NYU may negotiate with a $105k scholarship from Cornell, and it might even negotiate with a $60k scholarship from Cornell. There isn't a set in stone point where X school will negotiate based on Y school's tuition discount. It's a fluid, constantly moving process that you have to play appropriately.

That's good to know, thanks!
