The Wade brothers have made their final college decision! 

Last month, Ohio quadruplets Zachary, Aaron, Nick, and Nigel Wade found out that they were all accepted into Yale and Harvard University. From getting into 59 schools combined, to contemplating whether or not to continue their education at the same college, the Wade brothers’ final decision boiled down to the best financial aid offered.  


“Yale won,” said their father, Darrin Wade. “They made the best offer, and it was the benchmark for my sons.”

For Nick, Zachary and Nigel, their sights were pretty much set on Yale. However, Aaron was faced with a difficult decision between Stanford and his brothers’ top choice. Nick was the first to formally accept Yale’s offer for admission, then Nigel, then Zachary, and last, Aaron, who clicked the online decision button right before the deadline on May 1. Their recent visit to the university also helped solidify their final college choice.

The first of May marked National College Decision Day, which is the deadline for high school seniors to pick their college. This fall, the Wade brothers will continue their academic journey together, while also carving their own path as Zachary is leaning toward studying chemical engineering, and Aaron, artificial intelligence. Nick aspires to to become a diplomat, and Nigel, a doctor. 


Cheers to a bright future and best of luck to you all at Yale University!
