New York University is located in New York City. Its Graduate School of Arts & Sciences website says that the graduate admissions office looks closely for strong academic records, indications of growth and academic promise and prior achievements in assessing graduate applicants, but no specific minimum or GPA standard is indicated. Similarly, the school's Tisch School of the Arts doesn't note a particular GPA as necessary, but it also indicates the importance of the official transcript in an application.
