I don't have the statistic but this is from the info page on TLS:
"Waitlist relegation at NYU is not a fatal blow to an applicant’s chances, as the school accepts a significant number of waitlisted applicants each year. Therefore, a continuous show of interest in the school is crucial to those who find themselves on the waitlist. Even rejected students are left some hope of admission, as the school has shown a willingness to accept as transfer students applicants that had originally been rejected."

I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. From what I can gather, so far they've only accepted people who are going to raise their medians (as well as the stronger URMs). Sit tight for a little while before you get too pessimistic.
