As the Crimson and the Bulldogs faced off on the football field on Saturday, other Harvardians and Yalies were battling in the boardroom.
After two days of intensive interviews, six students from Harvard and seven from Yale were named among this year's Rhodes Scholars on Saturday afternoon. Together, the 13 scholarship winners from Harvard and Yale made up over one-third of the 32 winners chosen nationwide.
The six scholarship recipients from Harvard—Aidan C. de Burgh Daly '13, Julian B. Gewirtz '13, Allan J. Hsiao '13, Benjamin B. Wilcox '13, Nina M. Yancy '13, and Phillip Z. Yao '13—will study at Oxford next year with full funding.
And although Yale edged us 7-6 in Rhodes Scholars, we dominated them 34-24 in The Game, so Saturday was a net win for Harvard (40-31, if you're keeping count).
Sorry, Yale. Better luck next time.
