She referenced a new study by the Center for an Urban Future, a think tank based in Manhattan.

It found that only three point two-percent of 633,543 undergraduates in New York benefited from the program while 68-percent of scholarship applicants were denied.

That's about 43,513 out of 63,599 applications.
