I wouldn't worry. There will be plenty of money for the named scholarships. Maybe some donors just brought in the Vanderbilt this year to make sure Penn and UVA don't move ahead of NYU in the rankings. Also, keep in mind that a good number of people getting these full rides won't even enroll and NYU knows that.
