LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- After being accepted into several ivy league schools, all of the Wade quadruplets have decided they will attend Yale University in the fall.

Aaron, Nigel, Nick and Zachary Wade announced their decision during the Today Show Monday. The four brothers drew national attention last monthwhen they were all accepted into Yale, Harvard and several other universities across the country.

Nigel announced he had decided on Yale Thursday, and Nick and Zachary indicated they were leaning toward the Connecticut university. Aaron initially had Stanford University as his leading choice.

"We're grateful to our parents and the Lakota school district because it’s really something we couldn’t have done on our own without all the support we have had through our lives. It has been awesome," said Nick.

Kim Wade -- principal of Lakota Plains Junior School -- and Darrin Wade are the proud parents of the four. They say their sons have always excelled in the classroom and athletics.
