Is a Rhodes worth it?

These two Harvard grad's on Rhodes scholarships now say no. It is an interesting column that argues that students who are interested in extremely selective honors should understand the impact those honors will have on their lives. Not that I'd know, but I bet that a similar mentality pushes many to attend absurdly selective law schools when they don't even know if they want to become lawyers or students of the law.
