A family in Ohio is celebrating after all four of their quadruplet sons were accepted to Harvard University and Yale University this week. The New York Post reports that the Wade brothers of northern Cincinnati learned this week that they were collectively accepted to the Ivy League schools, among others.
“We’re grateful to our parents and the Lakota school district because it’s really something we couldn’t have done on our own without all the support we have had through our lives,” Nick Wade told reporters this week after learning of the acceptances. “It has been awesome.”
According to The New York Times, the brothers took a unique approach with their applications: They wrote essays about being part of a quad that can be read separately, yet were meant to be read together, like four pieces of a puzzle--and it worked. While Nick and his brothers Aaron, Nigel, and Zachary haven’t made their decisions, Aaron has his eyes on Stanford University.
The three others are reportedly leaning toward Yale, but are waiting to see what kind of financial aid they’ll receive.
