Carol, Ray, Martina, and Kenny Crouch ’14

Usually our Yalie of the Week is just one person, and usually that person has at least committed to attending Yale. But sometimes you have to break the mold, and the university’s first-ever admission of quadruplets—early action, no less—is such a time. Carol, Ray, Martina, and Kenny Crouch (clockwise from top left), seniors at Danbury High School in Connecticut, received their “Welcome to the Class of 2014” messages last week and became near-instant celebrities: first in the Danbury News-Times and then in the New York Times. That NYT article (which had a great headline, but seriously, guys—the front page?) prompted hundreds of comments. The siblings, however, are not yet sure whether they’ll accept Yale’s offer. They’re waiting to hear about financial aid. And Kenny, at least, is considering going “somewhere where I’m not ‘one of the quads.’”

The Yale Alumni Magazine is closed for winter recess. The next Yalie of the Week will appear on January 8, 2010.
