Writing for Lawctopus last year, with a headline worthy of ScoopWhoop no doubt, I had listed out reasons why I think more Indian law graduates should apply for the Rhodes scholarship. The article had made specific reference to an extremely useful Google Group run by Rhodes scholars from India.
This group is a fantastic initiative, and I hope that more Rhodes applicants continue to make use of the opportunity. The forum members have been quite generous and patient with their time, answering a number of queries within a very, very short span of time.
Clearly looking to build on this, the group will be organising a webinar, one which I would encourage all applicants (and potential applicants) to attend. The email about the webinar indicates that the webinar will be used to discuss:
“[the] main concerns that might be on your mind as well as several other frequently asked questions, ranging from crafting your personal statement, our thoughts on the legacy of Cecil Rhodes, and even the laborious task of soliciting references.”
The group has also sought out questions in advance which can be submitted here.
The details of the webinar are as follows:
When: Jul 11, 2020 04:00 PM India
