Quadruplet brothers who hail from Liberty Township, Ohio have been accepted into Yale University, following an impressive round of acceptances from top colleges across America which include Harvard university, Georgetown university, Stanford, Johns Hopkins and many other top universities.
All four brothers namely; Nick, Nigel, Zach and Aaron Wade decided to accept Yale’s offer, according to NBC News, which reported the brothers’ choice.
The four brothers, who previously showed The Post digital copies of admission letters and notifications, attend Lakota East High School, about 30 miles from Cincinnati in Ohio.
“The outcome has shocked us,” one of the brothers said when interviewed by The Post in April. “We didn’t go into this thinking, ‘Oh, we’re going to apply to all these schools and get into all of them.’ It wasn’t so much about the prestige or so much about the name as it was — it was important that we each find a school where we think that we’ll thrive and where we think that we’ll contribute.”
NBC reported that financial aid played a role in the brothers’ decision.
Yale offered all four brothers from an “incredible” financial aid package, which no other college could compete with.
Their parents Darren and Kim Wade, were initially told that they were expecting twins until one day they were told they should be expecting quadruplet instead.
“It was really at that point in time that I tried to figure out how we’re going to pay for school,” Darren explained.
This isn’t the first time that the prestigious institution has admitted quadruplets, though. A few years ago, Kenny, Martina, Ray and Carol Crouch earned slots at the university. All four of those quadruplets also selected Yale, according to the New York Times.
