if its top third at CCN, is there a noticeable difference in class percentile that you have to be at, if you are in Penn and Michigan since they are very almost near touching distance with NYU.
I honestly don't know specifics. But I'd bet the cut for NYU is closer to Columbia than to Penn
Just an FYI anecdotal comment, but I've had some candid discussions with hiring folks from a few firms to ask about GPA cutoffs, the schools they visit, etc. The people I spoke with were all NYC-based, and almost all said that they view CLS and NYU as essentially interchangeable with regard to GPA cutoffs and how far into the class they will go. They noted that both tend to attract the same caliber of student, so it wouldn't make sense to be more selective at one than the other.
As for other T10 schools, some said that they are receptive to any T10 school, and, short of HYS, view the rest as relatively similar (i.e. that CLS and NYU wouldn't be placed at an inherently higher cutoff than schools like Penn). Though quite a few said that they place CLS and NYU on a level above the rest of the T10 (remember that these were all NYC based folks I was speaking with, so this isn't surprising).
