I have a related question. I (very stupidly) applied ED to NYU. I thought I was in a weaker position for acceptance than I actually was; now I understand that it's probable I would have been accepted RD. Browsing LSN, I see that others with my numbers have gotten significant scholarship money from lower T-14s.
NYU is my top pick school for a number of reasons -- I live and work in the city, and my friends and support network are there. I love the village, and if I'm going to spend three years of my life somewhere, location matters to me. I would strongly prefer to work in NYC after graduating, hopefully in a large firm (I'm open to relocating, but my life is here in NY).
Still, I'm thinking about withdrawing my NYU app and trying my luck at a lower T-14 for scholarship money. I'm conflicted, because NYU is the school I want to go to, hands down. That I would even consider withdrawing would be unthinkable to me a few months ago. But now I'm experiencing a bit of sticker shock.
Just ask them to consider you for RD instead of ED. Call them Monday. If they say no, then say you are withdrawing your application.
