Quadruplet brothers all receive acceptances to Harvard and Yale

Quadruplet brothers hailing from Ohio have secured spots in the Ivy League.

Aaron, Nick, Nigel and Zachary Wade were all accepted into Harvard and Yale, as well as other top schools. The Washington Post reports that all four were at track practice when they received the acceptance emails.

Aaron told The Washington Post that they were still in shock. "I don't think it has sunk in yet," he said.

His brother, Zach, agreed. "Honestly, to have one child from a family be accepted to a school like this is amazing," he told The Post. "But for all four to be accepted -- I just don't, I don't know how it happened."

The Lakota East High School seniors have excelled in school, their principal tells the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News.
