Aaron, Zachary, Nigel and Nick Wade are all pretty smart. The quadruplets who attend Lakota East High School in Liberty Township, Ohio have accomplished something amazing. The brothers with the nickname of "Fantastic Four" have learned they have all been accepted to Ivy League universities like Yale and Harvard.

Nick Wade, along with Nigel and Zachary, is leaning toward attending Yale. Aaron, even though he was accepted to Yale and Harvard, currently has Stanford University as his leading choice.
The Wade brothers’ other acceptances also include: Nick heard positive offers from Duke, Georgetown and Stanford, while Nigel got into Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt and Zach made it into Cornell.
The Wade brothers don’t yet know if they’ll be going to school together as quadruplets or if they’ll be going their separate ways. However, Aaron is interested in studying computer science and cognitive science, Nick is into international relations, as Nigel wants to study neuroscience and Zack engineering.
“It’s really our parents our friends and our community who have come together and taught us how to be disciplined. We feel like getting into these schools show who the people around us are,” said Nigel Wade. “They said, ‘I know you guys can do it. You guys are hard workers, and the sky’s the limit,’” said Zachary Wade. “We were never told that we couldn’t get somewhere.”
Nigel Wade said while they were all surprised by college acceptances, another bonus has been “we’ve all, kind of, grew closer to each other.”
Let's hope there's some scholarships and grants with these kids. That's hundreds of thousands of dollars for EACH of the four.
