"We didn't go into this thinking, 'Oh, we're going to apply to all these schools and get into all of them, ' " Aaron Wade told the Washington Post, which confirmed their acceptance to the schools.

The quadruplet seniors earned the nickname by accomplishing an fantastic feat.

The brothers wouldn't be the first quadruplets to attend Yale together, if they take that path. Kenny, Martina, Ray and Carol Crouch all received acceptance to the school in 2009 and made a decision to attend in the fall of 2010, the New York Times reports. Nick, Nigel, Zachary, and Aaron they've have been accepted into some of the top universities in the nation. They were profiled in the Washington Post and spent most of Wednesday afternoon being followed by a national TV network news crew during their classes.

Thinking about his and his wife's eventual retirement, Mr. Wade notes that they want to avoid putting any extra liability on their children in later years.

And maybe also want we want in parents. "Their individual personalities are what truly set them apart as high school students and as great young men", said Davis.

The four are uniformly good natured, so much so that their version of an argument is to disagree over which sibling is the smartest. "It has been awesome", said Nick, who along with Nigel and Zachary are leaning toward attending Yale. "You're the guy who got a state department scholarship to study Arabic".

What they do all agree on is crediting their parents and Lakota teachers for helping to earn such an exciting opportunity. "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. Between the cost of Yale, which totals $64,000, and Harvard's $63,000 price tag, the family will be taking on a huge financial burden for all four boys to attend the universities.

Aaron Wade, however, now has Stanford University as his leading choice.

"I just felt blessed at that moment".

"The outcome has shocked us", said Aaron, who was also accepted into Brown and University of Pennsylvania.

Every kid receiving their acceptance notification from either school understands the unique elation of being part of such a select few, but four people in particular were not just elated, but stunned as well.

Their parents, Darrin, who works for General Electric and Kim, a school principal, say they have put aside some funds for their sons' educations, but Ivy League schools aren't cheap. "We were never told that we couldn't get somewhere".
