Two recent Harvard graduates say their battles to win Rhodes scholarships have not been worth it. High faculty attrition and meager budgets make research at Oxford frustrating, they argue in a Crimson editorial. In addition, though they are special, they do not get special privileges. "There are no breaks for Rhodes scholars," they write. Not even for Harvard-educated Rhodes scholars. "Expect the H-bomb to blow up in your face," they tell fellow Crimson peers. "Your undergrad alma mater can stigmatize you in your department and Rhodes House alike." Their advice: Do some research before you decide to apply for an elite scholarship--because if you're like these brainiacs, you may not realize until you get there that Oxford is not actually in London.
