Mayor Bloomberg recently disclosed that as three of the seven universities have been eliminated from consideration in the bid to build a new applied sciences campus in NY, with $100 million in aid from the city to launch it.

The original seven schools were Stanford University , Cornell University , Rockefeller University, Carnegie Mellon, University India’s Amity University, Columbia and NYU. According to Gothamist, Cornell and Stanford are still being considered and that Bloomberg said they are both “desperate to do it.”  The Mayor has not revealed the status on the other schools, but Gothamist speculates that Amity and Carnegie Mellon have been dropped and the winner will most likely be either Cornell or Stanford, due to the large scale and effort put into their proposals for a new campus, as opposed to an extension of ones currently in the city.
