Quadruplet brothers Aaron, Nick, Nigel and Zach Wade went viral when they were accepted into 59 top universities in 2017. The top universities included Harvard, Duke, Yale and Stanford. Four years later, the four brothers have now graduated from Yale University together.

Nick graduated with a degree in political science, with a minor in Arabic; Zach double majored in chemical engineering and economics; and Nigel received his degree in molecular, cellular and developmental biology. Aaron double majored in computer science and psychology.

Nicknamed the ‘Quad Squad’, the brothers did not spend their time on campus glued to each other as some may think.

Aaron told Today, “It’s interesting, because I think that the togetherness was very intangible. We studied different things and occupied different spaces on campus. We’re very different individuals.

“We lived on four different corners of campus, so sometimes we would go weeks or a month, or I’d run into my brother and go ‘Oh yeah, you go to school here, too.'”

Aaron continued, “Zach will be out in San Francisco at Goldman Sachs, and Nick is at Goldman in New York City, but living in New Jersey, and Nigel is doing research in New Haven. It feels like an extension of our Yale experience, so I imagine that the frequency with which we see each other will be the same.”

Although the brothers are going down different routes, their bond is unbreakable.

“To know no matter what I’m going through, I have three siblings, who are in the exact same place in their lives,” Aaron said. “It’s really special to know I have these three other people who know me better than anyone in the world.”
