Quadruplet brothers make Ivy League decision

This is the time of year that most college-bound students make a very tough decision: which school to choose. And for most parents, the bigger question: how to pay for it.

Quadruplets from Ohio will attend Yale University together this fall.

The Wade brothers had their pick of top schools including Harvard and Stanford, but chose Yale because they were offered sizable financial aid packages and had great visits at the school, AP reported. The brothers attend Lakota East High School in Liberty Township, Ohio.

Nick, Nigel, Zachary and Aaron Wade unveiled their decision on the Today show Monday morning. The foursome removed their jackets to display T-shirts with Yale on the front. 

And while it might seem like an unusual circumstance, this isn’t the first time Yale has had quadruplets choose its campus over other schools. 

In 2010, quadruplets from Connecticut chose to attend Yale, after also receiving offers from other desirable schools, the New York Times reported.
