Band Steering Question

We just bought a bunch of AP230s for a one AP per classroom model (1:1 environment). For those radios I want to do band steering but I'm undecided on the 80/20 balanced band steering split or the Urge 5ghz with the 5 probe retries until accommodating a 2.4 request. What are you guys doing? The clients next year will be a mix of .ac and .n but I'm sure there will be some BYOD too.

For example:

if you have a classroom with 22 MBA or MBP then urge
if you have an area with 60 clients of mixed capabilities then choose balanced
