NYU tells the Post it has "enrolled its largest student body in decades this year...More than 21,600 undergraduates enrolled at NYU this school year -- up nearly 400 from last year -- while more than 18,200 graduate students enrolled -- a one-year spike of nearly 800 enrollees." The school's enrollment has also increased 33% since 1990.
