Getting accepted to college is a huge deal for most high school seniors and a highly anticipated and an often anxiety provoking experience. Furthermore, for parents, deciding on the right school for their child and finding a college that offers financial support is crucial during decision making time. Well, one family just hit the jackpot of college acceptances and proved that dreams can come true.
Through hard work and determination, all four Wade quadruplets managed to get accepted by Harvard and Yale. The brothers were offered acceptances from 59 colleges combined! Recently on NBC News, the quadruplets from Ohio revealed that they will all be attending Yale together in the fall. The prestigious ivy league offered the quadruplets an “extraordinary” financial aid package that was too good to pass up.
Nick, Zach, and Nigel, three of the four quadruplets felt that Yale was an easy decision. The three 18-year-olds said, “The school treated us like family.” Aaron Wade, the fourth brother, was also accepted to Stanford University and had a tougher time deciding. He told NBC News, “I absolutely enjoyed the people and the social environment and appreciated the strong arts and humanities at Yale.”
Then he visited Stanford and said, “There was a part of me that didn’t want to like the school because it would make my decision easy. Alas, that didn’t happen. I loved it as well.” Aaron continued, “But at the end of the day, Yale made sense logistically — and it’s an amazing school. I don’t regret my decision even though right now it kind of feels like a sacrifice.”
Understandably so, the parents of the quadruplets, Darrin and Kim Wade, could not have been more proud of their boys. Also, they were pretty excited that they would not need to attend four separate graduations. When asked what their secret was to raising such successful sons, Darrin Wade answered, “Lots of pushups and sit-ups and running.”
