I would say another thing in general. There's a lot of great suggestions in the comments and many folks feel I've overweighted one thing or another. The point isn't to pick any ONE thing, be it test scores or libraries or whatever. It's to use enough data points to build a comprehensive picture or a model that you understand.

There's a great quote by the statistician George E. P. Box that I'd use here: "Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful".
