Wow, I totally expected more from UPenn.
Nov 6th, 2009 at 16:09 GMT
and columbia and michigan and ucla and cal and washu
Nov 6th, 2009 at 23:57 GMT
Definitely impressed by Montana
Nov 8th, 2009 at 03:11 GMT
I think you left off Reed College, with 31.
Nov 8th, 2009 at 20:19 GMT
Typed UNC and then North Carolina; it didn't register for University of North Carolina. Anyone else have this problem?
Nov 11th, 2009 at 23:48 GMT
UNC should've worked, added North Carolina as a possible answer. Also, fixed Reed College, my bad for not spotting that earlier.

pretty surprised the other 2 ivy league weren't there

Oh man, I feel really stupid for not guessing any of the Academies...
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 17:59 GMT
Montana? Who knew? Cool!
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 17:59 GMT
Oh man, I feel really stupid for not guessing Montana.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:05 GMT
I bet Duke and UNC hate that they're tied on this.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:12 GMT
Duke probably hates it more than UNC; the Tar Heels aren't the ones calling themselves the Harvard of the South.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:20 GMT
Duke and UNC aren't tied anymore. This year's Rhodes winners were just announced a couple of weeks ago - UNC has 2, Duke has 0.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:29 GMT
I only remembered Montana because it was a question once on my local public access channel's trivia show about completely unbelievable trivia. Heh.
More importantly: Can it accept Naval Academy? I think it ultimately took "US N," which is awkward. Also, I vote for Rhodes College as a bonus, even if it's only had 7. ;)
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:30 GMT
My school recently had its first and it became a huge deal. Looks like we have a ways to go.
Comment below threshold:
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:38 GMT
Wow. You have the Michigan of the east on there, but not the real thing.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 18:54 GMT
I couldn't believe I couldn't think of the #4 answer. I thought I had guessed all of the usual suspects of the top schools. Then I saw the quiz was submitted by BeatNavy and thought, Hmmmmmm.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 19:20 GMT
Surprised the other two ivy leagues aren't there
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 19:40 GMT
I don't mean to be picky,but this list is completely incorrect. It must be that the source used is only for American universities only. McGill University for example has produced something around 130 Rhodes Scholars, yet the source given for this quiz lists it as only having 1. I presume this 1 individual was an American and is therefore included in the table. In any case, the quiz should either be completely redone, or have its title changed to read "Can you name the American colleges which have produced the most Rhodes Scholars?"
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 19:43 GMT
Just to prove my point here is a list of the (at that time) 125 Rhodes Scholars from McGill. http://www.mcgill.ca/newsroom/news/item/?item_id=13671
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 19:59 GMT
Hmmm, I wonder which one the author of this quiz went to....
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 20:00 GMT
You should really specify it is for American colleges only, Rhode scholarships are granted to a number of countries (mostly Commonwealth countries). There is no way some Australian and Canadian universities are not on the list
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 20:34 GMT
Agree with the last few comments. The source for the quiz is the Office of the American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust. Given that only 40% of the scholarships are allocated to the American Office (the rest going to Commonwealth members), the quiz should make that clear.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 21:21 GMT
Very interesting quiz, a few surprises, but fun to play! Would like to see a sequel with some type of Rhodes Scholar/gender break-down quiz.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 21:26 GMT
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 22:12 GMT
Don't vote me down for not being american but I was confused that they are described as "College"s rather than "university".
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 01:00 GMT
glad my alma mater wasn't the only ivy not on the list. i always take pleasure in at least being better than penn.
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 02:10 GMT
Wisconsin only Big Ten school. Go Badgers!

Hey Daiblo11d! Only a Dartmouth grad would know WaHooWa! Russ'69
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 02:47 GMT
Never would have guessed Reed. I thought that school was just a bunch of stoners.
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 04:58 GMT
You should say something qualifying the quiz as for American universities.
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 13:36 GMT
@JC3: I kinda figured that would be how people knew it was only for American schools. That was what gave it away to me, anyway. But I agree with others that it should be made clearer.
@ted: You're confusing Reed with Hampshire. Common mistake. Most Hampshire students do the same thing. ;)
Dec 3rd, 2009 at 14:10 GMT
I completely forgot the academies.....duh.
Dec 4th, 2009 at 13:09 GMT
Oxford, pah. Cambridge is where they should be aiming for.
Dec 4th, 2009 at 18:04 GMT
@Esme: The use of the word 'college' threw me off in the other direction: I thought the quiz was 'Which Oxford Colleges accept the most Rhodes Scholars.'
May 23rd, 2010 at 05:56 GMT
Wow - I guessed Montana as a joke after not seeing Cal, Northwestern, Michigan, Wash U., Emory, Florida, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, etc. Complete shock.
Aug 30th, 2010 at 17:22 GMT
No, this ought to be titled "colleges", not "universities"; several of the colleges on the correct list are not universities (Swarthmore, Williams, Reed).
Oct 7th, 2010 at 01:01 GMT
The new results are available from a link at http://www.rhodesscholar.org/stats/ . Also they note: We hesitate to publish this due to the ease in which these statistics are misused and misinterpreted, but we do so as lists like this are now widely available but frequently inaccurate. Please keep in mind though that the Rhodes Scholarship competition has never been a national one, so state and institutional comparisons are not particularly relevant or meaningful.

Nebraska's only got 5 more to be tied for 20th...GBR!
