Rhodes Scholars’ Alma Maters

With acceptance letters en route to students, it’s time for a refresher course on “Acceptance to an Elite School Does Not Guarantee Anything– Nor Does Non-Acceptance.” Here is a list of the schools that the 2014 Rhodes Scholars attended:

  • Washington University (St Louis)
  • University of Virginia
  • Yale
  • University of Wisconsin
  • Mississippi State University
  • Harvard
  • United States Military Academy
  • University of Chicago
  • Smith
  • University of Tennessee
  • Princeton
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Williams
  • MIT
  • Wake Forest
  • Dartmouth
  • UC Berkeley
  • Stanford
  • Villanova
  • NYU (Abu Dhabi campus)
  • Carnegie Mellon

So yes, the usual suspects– Harvard, Yale, Stanford, etc.– are well-represented on this list, but clearly by no means mandatory for admission to this most exclusive of clubs.
