*A set of Maryland quadruplets who graduated high school on June 1 will attend the same university in the fall – a decision that was not initially planned, but a logistical godsend that pleases their parents to no end.
“We were a little concerned about how we would manage, if they had to move into a dorm on the same day at different schools, and we had to be here and be there at the same time,” their dad Adam Scott, of Ellicott City, told the Baltimore Sun. “And we’d have to get them back and forth between here and multiple schools.
“And at the end of it, heaven forbid they graduate on the same day,” he said.
Alexis, Brandon, Christina and Dominique, 18, graduated Wednesday from River Hill High School and will all attend Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
Per the Baltimore Sun:
Alexis tends to be the speaker for the group, and plans to major in communications and minor in psychology on a pre-law track.
“I like to argue, and I’m the mediator,” she said. “My dad calls me Johnny Cochran.”
Brandon is quieter, and has “good style,” his siblings say. He plans to study marketing at Duquesne and hopes to open up his own fashion company one day.
Christina is the CSI and NCIS fan in the group and is going to complete a five-year forensic science law program.
“I like figuring out mysteries,” she said. “I don’t want to be in a lab — I want to be out in the field with the dead bodies.”
Dominique seems more serious than her siblings. She plans to study business management and real estate, and wants to flip and build houses for the homeless.
The four didn’t initially want to go to the same school, but as their college search progressed, Duquesne seemed like the best fit for each of them, because of its small class sizes, urban location and the fact that it has a forensic science program, which is not available at many schools.
Plus, the four weren’t quite ready to separate.
“We’re each other’s security blankets,” Alexis said.
