Did any of the URMs with that number range ED? Also keep in mind that not many of us put our stats up on lsd: case in point, my numbers are very useful to your question but I have never put up a profile on lsn.
Another thing in regards to NYU. You should think and be strategic with your apps. NYU has the biggest class size in the top 14 after GULC and Harvard. In other words they have a harder time keeping their URM percentage numbers up, yet they can absorb relatively low numbers combos and still not affect their median if they want to. Make them want to do this for you by writing a strong personal statement, getting great reccs, and applying ED. If it makes you feel more comfortable there's a URM on here who got into UChicago ED last cycle with a 3.2 and a 162 combo (or something very close)---Chicago is a much smaller (I believe half the size of NYU?) school that cannot absorb as many apps with those numbers and
it has a lower admit rate than NYU...........
