according to admissions, more acceptances ARE coming.
NYU is trolling us, seriously, do you expect any less from these guys? I am coming up on my 28th week after application submittal. Normal (read: non-sadistic) people do not make not make other people wait this long.
I agree that it's hard to imagine a regular, "on the merits"-type acceptance at this point in the game. But I could see NYU waiting until the last minute as a sort of semi-WL, i.e. looking for a few final admits to round out the class in the event of a lower-than-expected yield on, say, applicants that had scholarship offers. Once it becomes clear that they're on track to hit their yield goals, mass WLs would follow, to be reevaluated only after the true yield becomes known.
