Quadruplets accepted into top colleges

Posted at 7:27 AM, Apr 07, 2017

The Wade brothers are setting new standards for family achievements.

The brothers are quadruplets. Nick, Nigel, Zachary, and Aaron they've have been accepted into some of the top universities in the nation. The list includes Duke, Yale, Harvard, Stanford, and others.

The brother shared their excitement with theWashington Post.

“We’re still in shock, honestly,” Aaron said this week. “I don’t think it has sunk in yet.”

“I just felt blessed at that moment,” Nigel said. “It was an unreal feeling, I guess.”

“Honestly, to have one child from a family be accepted to a school like this is amazing,” Zach said. “But for all four to be accepted — I just don’t, I don’t know how it happened.”

The brothers can't go wrong with any choice, but surprisingly they're considering attending separate universities. The brothers are downplaying that decision for now and have decided to enjoy the moment.

“We really don’t know. We still have to make those decisions,” Nick said. “We’re just shocked. We still don’t believe that we got in.”
