If you look at the more academically oriented rankings, the ones that focus university-wide on major prize winners, research activity, major publications, etc., NYU ranks significantly higher than Brown and Dartmouth, and not terribly far from the middle of the Ivy League. It's not challenging, HYPC (Columbia), you're right -- yet. It looks like NYU is not quite there in undergraduate education, but the professional schools, STEM activity, and some grad schools are. And in undergrad studies, as at a number of schools, motivated students can cobble together Ivy caliber educations, if not prestige, with the professors they have available. Anecdotal conversations with friends suggest NYU still is stingy with financial aid to most students, especially at its professional schools. It's an interesting case hope story of diagnosis, strategy and execution bearing results.
