Connecticut Quadruplets Accepted to Yale
The Crouch quadruplets of Danbury, Connecticut may have just made Yale history. The quads — Martina, Carol, Ray and Ken — all applied for early admission to the Ivy League icon Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. On Tuesday, December 15th they logged in one at a time to the web site of Yale's admissions office. One by one, they were gifted with the blue screen that shows the university mascot and those much sought after words, "Welcome to the Class of 2014." The Crouches, who attend Danbury HS, all rank within the top 46 out of a class of 632 and have exceptional SAT scores. It is the first time in memory that a set of quads have been accepted at the school.
Whether or not they all accept and attend the University will in large part be a monetary decision. While Yale is known for meeting the financial needs of its applicants, four at the same time in an Ivy League school is a dollar amount that boggles the mind. Yale seems commited and excited at the prospect of having the Crouches attend and takes into consideration all factors when proposing a financial aid package.
As for the proud parents who are both college graduates, in their own words, "We're honored and humbled."
