yeah. nice. but what really makes winthrop shine is dropping students in story phase with full ride scholarship / shocking transformation or feed her young. otherwise he becomes a bit useless in the operations phase. no matter how many cards you draw with students, it dont really effect much unless youre using it to drop icons for back line hastur terror or the like.
dr. laban is great for this also. i once, using a simple full ride scholarship and an archaeology interns, with 2 x dean of admissions and a scientific text, blanked 5 icon boxes ( as i drew laban as one of the 5 cards as well ) in the story phase. pure mayhem. he's a great card ol' winthrop.
