According to reports, it's was Nicks idea that himself and his brothers wrote an essay on how being a quadruplet influenced their individual lives. Each of siblings decided to write their individual experience and submitted their application as a "Package Deal." Surprisingly, their efforts paid off - catching the attention of high profile schools.
“We’re still in shock, honestly. I don’t think it has sunk in yet.” – Aaron Wade
“I just felt blessed at that moment. It was an unreal feeling, I guess.” – Nigel Wade
“Honestly, to have one child from a family be accepted to a school like this is amazing. But for all four to be accepted – I just don’t, I don’t know how it happened.” – Zach Wade
The father of the 18-year-olds of Lakota East High School in Ohio, was so much in awe, he recounted how they learned they were having multiple babies. Not twins but quadruplets and the need to save a lot of money for their college education.
“I remember they were doing an ultrasound and they said, ‘Mr. Wade, you better sit down.’ I said, ‘What’s going on?’ They said, ‘There’s not two. There’s four.’ It was really at that point in time that I tried to figure out how we’re going to pay for school,” Darrin Wade said.
Nick got accepted into Duke, Georgetown and Stanford. While Aaron was accepted to Stanford as well. Nigel locked in Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt while Zach snagged Cornell. However, these were not the only schools that accepted the young men.
Congratulations the these great young men!
