policy is the "why." Why is the law a good/bad idea, from a wide range of perspectives.

nthing not doing it at all. SBA is generally ineffective and time-consuming. YMMV.
It was a no-offer; "sorry we're not inviting you back," that jag. Mid-market firm, 100 attorneys or so in a major regional market. Still waiting to have a more detailed conversation about the rationale and how much it was tied to the economy, etc. Probably won't be doing BIGLAW across the board; it wasn't a great fit for me at any rate; I didn't really care about whether our clients won or lost, so big-picture wise it was probably good for me.
There isn't really any formula, the biggest thing to do is to be comfortable and have a conversation with the interviewer. The easiest path to this is to have something that stands out on your resume that is different; maybe you wrote a novel, maybe you backpacked mongolia for a year, maybe you rode your bike across the US; something that will bring with it a good anecdote that the interviewer will remember you by.
Or be the editor of law review.

I'd check your school's policy, most are pretty clear. That said, from an intellectual honesty POV, my gut says that rounding to hundredths is ok, rounding to tenths is not, due to the large difference in magnitude.
