They ♥ NY(U)! Tops wish list again

It’s not just the first choice of the Olsen twins.
For the third year in a row, college applicants have rated New York University the most desirable school in the country, according to a new survey.
The Princeton Review named Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s pick as the top “dream” college after a survey of nearly 4,000 students. The Greenwich Village institution outpolled such vaunted bastions of higher learning as Harvard, Princeton and Stanford.
“[NYU] has fantastic academics and it’s set in the greatest neighborhood in the greatest city in the world,” crowed university spokesman John Beckman.
A record 35,000 students applied this year for the 4,000 freshman spots in NYU’s class of 2010 – more than any other private college or university, Beckman said.
