Andover vs Exeter

Hi guys! i hope you guys are all well during this pandemic :/

I got into Andover, Exeter, Taft, and St Andrews. (grade 9) (international) (boarder)
I have no legacy so I don't personally know much about the schools.

I am a:
- professional dancer (10 years) (ballet, contemp, jazz, hip-hop) (semi finalist at international competition) (offered admission to prestigious ballet school but didn't go as I don't want to be a professional dancer)
- grade 8 pianist (9 years)
- environmental "activist": (internship, student leader within clubs, PSA projects)
- track and field

I'm interested in:
- language (i speak 4 = english, mandarin, japanese and cantonese)
- english + humanities
- philosophy
- conjunctive sciences
- biology

I am currently leaning towards as Andover because of the strong art and humanities programs. I also got the best "vibe" when I visited.

Do you guys think it's the best school for me?

    I know a little bit about Andover and Exeter. I had interviews with both schools, but I never actually submitted my applications.

    This decision is super personal, and it requires a lot of self reflection. Where do YOU think you'll thrive? Where do YOU envision yourself?

    Objectively speaking, I think that Andover may suit you better. As you said, Andover has very strong arts and humanities programs. Exeter is definitely more STEM oriented.

    Either way, they're both excellent schools, and I'm sure you'll be happy with either decision! (:
