Could one make the argument that it could be a good idea not to send the transcript (because LSAC would forward the new GPA to all of the schools the applicant has applied to), and while this might lead to an NYU rejection, it could preserve the applicant's chances of getting into other schools that haven't asked for fall grades and improve his/her chance of scholarship money at schools he/she has already been accepted?
I am wondering the same thing, as I went from a .89 to a .86 (which is alot for me, 1 A 3 A- 1 B+). However, if NYU wants to see my fall grades before making a decision I'm sure other schools do too. It might explain why I have been ignored for a while. I don't know if you are in the same situation, but I would hate to bank on it only being NYU and have it be all schools want to see my new (lower) grade.
