If you have a high GPA don’t blow it on anything lower than 168. Sure you might crack a T14 but it’ll cost (versus something sweet). If your GPA is just meh, better nail 170 or just forget about it. Employment chances are looking better but they’re still not a sure thing (referring to a couple calls I recently received from those still looking for work).

Today you might be nonchalant about a 175 tuition debt, but you won’t be when you’re writing monthly checks for 3k (even if you’re lucky enough to make six figures).
