Question on Subway Tile

I will be installing some subway tile as our kitchen backsplash. Because of the running bond of the tile every other course will be a half tile at the outside end which will end at a Schluter trim.

Do you have every other course be a cut end at the trim or do you trim off all courses so they all have a cut edge at the trim?

If the tiles have beveled edges, or are such that a cut edge would be thicker than the edge of a whole tile, I like to have every row ending in a cut to the trim. Otherwise, ending in wholes and halves is fine.
