I'm pretty sure you can take out as much as you'd like, NYU is just doing some basic math so that you get an understanding of what you might take out.
I was looking at on campus housing, where did you find that $1,200 figure?
The cheapest possible NYU housing goes for $1500/mo.
It's true that living in BK you can spend only 750-1000 in rent. Just be aware, though, that that means a 30 min commute and living with roommates. Neither of those are strange for NYC, but people from other parts of the country might need some adjustment.
I was thinking of CLS, sorry.
