ehh that seems about right, the only one I can think of is George Washington, I'm not even sure if that counts
I can't think of a better example, and yet NYU's UG is much better than mediocre... so the hypothesis fails to be rejected
Yeah, it's all relative. NYU is not a Top-25 UG, but it may be Top-50.
That said, it has a great law school, a very good business school and a very good medical school. It also has one of the two best film schools in the country and, on the whole, very good graduate programs. So I think it qualifies as an extremely good overall university, but I would not call it an extremely good UG.
