    When declining Exeter’s offer, were you asked which school you chose to attend this upcoming school year?

    It’s a common question. Almost every school we declined asked it. We answered truthfully and gave the reasons for declining when asked. Given how much these schools invested in reviewing the applications, we felt that we should be forthcoming in the spirit of helping future applicants.

    @wildflower2019: this is an Andover class thread, so this isn't the right place to post that (especially as Exeter and Andover are archrivals), but good luck!

    I'm super excited. It's finally sinking in that it's all real, and I think next year will be marvelous. I can't wait, and I'm excited to meet you all next year!

    @wildflower2019 ...this is an Andover class of 2023/any other year thread. We already got in! That said, Exeter is an awesome school too, so I hope you find your place there!

    May I interject?

    Despite this being an Andover thread (and me very obviously headed to another school), I'd just like to say hi. I declined Andover's offer of admission and I must admit, I'm sorta curious about what's up at the Big Blue. Guess I'll find out later this fall!

    @RedLioness hi, may I ask why you declined? I'm just curious

    Sure! I declined for 2 reasons.
    1. Their offered FA package.
    While Andover touts itself as giving students all the FA they need to attend (and some may find that true), they actually offered the lowest percent FA of all schools I was accepted to. My family honestly didn't think an Andover education was worth paying so much (enough we could barely afford it) for high school, especially compared to the other FA packages I was offered. We might've appealed it - if the second reason hadn't came up...

    2. Their Revisit Day
    I headed out to Andover for the March 29th Revisit Day, and it actually did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. While trying to convince me to enroll, they actually convinced me OUT of enrolling. While classes were perfectly fine, the intensity of how forcefully everyone was about how I should attend Andover was a bit shocking and, bluntly, left me with some serious disdain for the Big Blue. We decided to not appeal and love the school that loved us the most.

    @ffsophiar yeah, i'm coming in next year as a new lower. insane how many people there are I literally ran into a girl in my grade at a coffeeshop randomly today because I was wearing an (insanely comfy) Andover sweatshirt.

    @kafkatamura I live in North Carolina so i'm pretty sure i won't be running into any other Andover kids, but i do wear my sweatshirt as often as possible. it's so soft!

    @ffsophiar The last I checked, the number of students from NC was in the double digits. I imagine you'll run into some on flights during breaks.

    I don't know if anyone will read this since this is such a old thread, but does Andover give you a sweatshirt upon enrollment?
