Ohio quadruplet brothers accepted at Ivy League universities

Share
These talented quadruplets were all accepted to Harvard and Yale

The brothers also got in to other notable schools with Nick being accepted to Duke, Georgetown, and Stanford; Aaron securing a spot at Stanford; Nigel getting into John Hopkins and Vanderbilt; and Zach receiving an acceptance letter from Cornell. "But for all four to be accepted-I just don't, I don't know how it happened". Aaron secured entry into Stanford, too.

In case it isn't clear how unbelievable the quad's accomplishment is-according to Yale's website, more than 32,000 people applied to be part of their 2021 class.

"No, no", said Aaron Wade. Of them, 2,272 were admitted. According to Aaron, "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".

The odds are against it, but, the Post reports, but it's not the first time Yale has admitted an entire set of quadruplets. A few years ago, Kenny, Martina, Ray and Carol Crouch learned that they had earned early admission slots with the university. It happened for four sisters in CT in 2009, the New York Times reports.

"They said, 'I know you guys can do it. There's four, '" Darrin Wade said, recounting how it was initially thought that the couple would be having twins.

Their father works for General Electric and their mother is a principal of a middle school in Ohio.

USA general confident North Korean missile can be intercepted
When conducting nuclear and missiles tests in recent years, it has cited what it calls increasing USA military threats. Others attribute North Korea's unsuccessful launches to poor-quality missiles, unreliable equipment, and incompetence.

Like a number of other elite schools, Harvard and Yale pledge to meet the full demonstrated financial need of the students they admit.

Darrin said he and his wife want to make sure they have enough put away to take care of themselves in their retirement.

While the boys share their plans to study global relations, economics, engineering, computer science, cognitive science and neuroscience, their father reflected on the moment he first started thinking about financially planning for their higher education endeavors. Aaron wants to study computer science and cognitive science. Harvard charges $63,000 per year for tuition and room and board and Yale charges $64,000. Kim Wade said the boys haven't decided where to go yet, but they are thrilled with the results of their application process. The brothers are-as of now-unsure whether they'll stay together for their college years.

"We're still in shock, honestly".

Zachary nodded in agreement and added, "There has never been a time in our life whenever we said something (career goals) they said "oh that's a big goal".
