Born minutes apart, the Wade brothers — Aaron, Nick, Zach and Nigel — went viral years ago after the four got accepted to and chose Yale University to attend college. The four were the talk of their Cincinnati suburb of Liberty Township and the nation because of their unique birth and their incredible academic ability. In 2017 they were accepted into 59 universities, including Harvard, Duke, Yale and Stanford, according to People.
The brothers, who were known as “The Quads” in high school and knew all the same people, but branched out on their own in college really developing who they were as individuals.
“We grew up in this town where we had always existed as The Quads or the Wade brothers. But when we got to Yale, it was very much small fish in a big pond,” added Aaron.

As they begin this new chapter, the 22-year-old quadruplets, who celebrated their graduation last month at a New Haven pizza restaurant with their parents, are now going their separate ways for post-grad life.
Nick and Zach both got jobs at Goldman Sachs, but Nick will be in New York City and Zach will be in San Francisco.
Meanwhile, Nigel will stay in New Haven for two years to complete a research program in a Parkinson’s disease lab. After that, he plans to apply to medical school.
Aaron will also be in New Haven for one more semester, where he’ll be doing his senior thesis. He officially graduates in December, and already has a job lined up at Google in New York City.
“It feels like an extension of our Yale experience, so I imagine that the
