why apply for the Rhodes?

I tried to talk one of Maryland's Rhodes Scholarship applicants from last year into reapplying, because he came within a whisker of winning. Since he's primarily a scientist, it's not necessarily in his interest to go to Oxford. But he's also something of an activist for deaf culture, and the Rhodes could open doors for him later if he wanted to continue advocacy work.
