As the scattergram shows, NYU is a highly selective university. The blue and green represent accepted students, so you can see that the great majority of students who got into New York University have a GPA above a 3.4, an ACT composite score above 24, and a combined SAT score (CR+M+W) of above 1700. The chances for admission look best for students with GPAs of 3.6 or better, ACT scores of 27 or better, and an SAT score of about 1900 or higher.

Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. NYU has holistic admissions, so the admissions officers are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. Students who show some kind of remarkable talent or have a compelling story to tell will often get a close look even if grades and test scores aren't up to the ideal.
