perhaps something in your PS or LoR scared certain adcomms off...everything else looks good, the grad gpa makes up for a lack of undergrad gpa in my speculative opinion

You seem to be a pretty atypical candidate. While I think there might be a combination of things happening, I think the late application could have really hurt your cause. You are the type of applicant schools need more time to consider and may be given a spot earlier on in the cycle and passed over later in the admissions cycle just b/c there are more variables than normal and it's harder to gauge if you will be a riskier admit for schools or not.

Have no clue whether the lack of a green card could have played a factor.

You probably seem like a riskier candidate, and late in the game, those types don't fare well. I say go to NYU and be happy.
