If you want to work on your inferiority complex over break, check out the SEVEN (7) American Yale students who were awarded Rhodes scholarships. These are some remarkably cool achievements…


This is huge. Congrats to the winners! And if you felt unsatisfied with the outcome of The Game, consider something the Rhodes Foundation announcement suggests about H/Y superiority: Seven students from Yale won the Rhodes this year, and only* six did from Harvard. Who’s the winner now?**



* This feels ridiculous.

** Note: zero students from Princeton won the Rhodes this year. For the record, though, they did beat both Yale and Harvard at football.
