    Being a triplet, I can say that it isn't necessary to apply to all the same schools. I think being a triplet/quadruplet will add an interesting point to your apps and I did include it in one of my essays for UCs. But, I think it is not necessary to apply to the same places. It would be fun though and like infinite bragging rights if say your brother with a lower score or different EC etc. got in and another doesn't. (which may cause for sibling competition, which is fun as it is stressful :P) We applied to many of the same schools (my sister and I who are academically similar - my brother is not and doesn't qualify for more prestigious schools), but not because of each other, rather but for ourselves. That being said, it will be fun to see which of us get in where and should be similarly fun for you :)

    Maybe your parents want to join that empty nest thread in the parents forum! They are going to miss you all so much.

    Speaking of parents, do mind telling us what your parents are like? I have one child and it's hard enough staying on top of her and keeping track of her upcoming tests and everything that I can't imagine how your parents were able to make sure all 4 of you were doing everything you needed to be doing. If I had to guess, the 4 of you are very self-motivated, but you have parents with very high expectations. Am I right?
