When kids apply to college and the admissions period rolls around, households tend to get pretty tense. Everyone wants to know where the high school senior got in and where he or she didn't. But imagine the college admissions process for quadruplets. Then, imagine all four quadruplets getting accepted to the same school.

The New York Times reports that 18-year-olds Ray, Kenny, Martina, and Carol Crouch were all accepted to Yale University as part of the school's early application process. It's the first time in anyone's memory that quadruplets were accepted at Yale, the report says.

The quadruplets, who were born more than two months premature, rank between 13 and 46 in a class of 632 at Danbury High School in Connecticut. All four had "sky-high SAT scores," the report says.

There is one caveat: The Crouches aren't sure that they'll attend the New Haven, Conn., school. Financial aid will play a major role in their college choice. But for now, the sheer excitement that comes with such unique news has center stage in the Crouch household.
