Rhode Scholars 2010
Aakash K. Shah, Cliffside Park, graduated from Ursinus College and is now in his first year at Harvard Medical School. At Ursinus, he majored in inequality studies, biology and neuroscience. A Goldwater Scholar and junior member of Phi Beta Kappa, Aakash was on the varsity track team, worked with United Students Against Sweatshops in Mexico, and examined environmental health problems in Indian slums. He plans a career combining clinical and academic medicine with global health policy. He will do the M.Sc. in Comparative Social Policy at Oxford. He is the first Rhodes Scholar to be elected from Ursinus College.
some of us are not good enough
Why? Do you want to follow down his path? A lot of us (in medical school) have no interest in heading to Harvard, applying for the Rhodes scholarship, or even putting that level of effort in to research.
Grats to him though, we need people to do research.
I didn't even know what the Rhodes Scholarship was until 5 minutes ago.
I almost choked on my water, thank you.
The Rhodes is the most prestigious and eliquent of awards to be given to the most noble and distinguished scholars in the colonies. Rhodes Scholars are the best of the best and shall be regarded as immortals amidst the mere mortals on Earth.
OP as a semi-finalist I can tell you that the Rhodes Scholarship is nothing but a bunch of BS as is the Marshall.
As a matter of a fact, half the kids I met were not what I would call future world leaders.
Oh and I was almost a Rhodes Scholar and I can't break a 30 on the mcat. Only taken it once two years ago though. But anyway the Rhodes means nothing. Harvard acceptance is something though.
Frankly, if I really wanted to, I could accomplish all that Mr. Mehta did and more. But, I just don't give a flying crap.
