Third, take some professors who will teach you the art of exegesis, and others who will teach you the science. 

All of us tend one way or the other. If you are all about the art of exegesis find the professor who teaches it as a science.

We all need both, and if you only gravitate towards what you like, then you will be unbalanced in your interpretation. Or at least you won’t be able to interact with those who argue from the other perspective.

Here is a good way to tell which one you gravitate towards. Are you a math person or a literature person? Math people tend to see it as a science, and literature people as an art. Be careful not to spurn each other, both are needed and both are useful.
