The endowment metric should be per student so St. Pauls isn’t that far off the mark. I agree that size of endowment is not the greatest measure above a certain point and both A and E are way above that point. Andover has better crew.
Has anyone responded: “My kid.”
From my perspective, it seems pretty pathetic that either would feel the need to boast.
I think you may need to dig deeper to better understand what you want out of the next few years of high school.
This is a very superficial take on these two schools, and it’s concerning if you think “bigger library and… (a few) more classes” is actually meaningful.

Historically, Exeter was considered more traditional (eg formal dress code) and Andover was more progressive (no dress code), but ultimately they are more similar than different. I remember knowing a boy (in the ‘80s) who chose Andover because Exeter didn’t have a boys gymnastics team. I think people choose based on small factors - a specific course, a coach - or campus vibe.
