CINCINNATI — Quadruplets from a Cincinnati suburb are more in sync than their age. They’ve chosen to attend Yale University together over other top schools in the country, including Harvard and Stanford.
The Liberty Township brothers say they had great visits to Yale and were offered hefty financial aid packages.
Nick, Nigel, Zachary and Aaron Wade revealed their choice via video chat on Monday morning’s NBC “Today” Show, removing their jackets together to show Yale T-shirts.
After they received their acceptances from multiple schools, Aaron was leaning toward Stanford while his brothers favored Yale. But he said he was happy with Yale after visiting.

The 4-for-4 accomplishment is even more impressive when compared to how few students actually get into Yale. The college accepted just 2,272 out of 32,900 applicants for the class of 2021.
Their mother, Kim Wade, is a Lakota Schools junior high school principal. Their father, Darrin Wade, works at General Electric Co.
The brothers credited their parents and the teachers at Lakota East High School with helping them get into their top schools in April. “We feel like getting into these schools show who the people around us are,” Nigel said.
