Question Open ticket or return ticket

Hi guys, I need your insight on this one. I'm planning to book a flight for July, now I don't know if its better to get an open ticket or schedule a return flight (if so, how long? Or what is the best duration before the flight back home, I was thinking 4 months so that at least I get to stay there til November)
I want to make it thru the Oct to December interview season, so as you can see, I am hoping to be given 6 months at the port of entry.
Do u have any idea how I can achieve this? I've been to the US a couple of times before, been given 6 months at the port of entry, I want to be more cautious now because unlike before, my visa was multiple10 yrs (twice).
Now that i am taking the USMLEs, they gave me multiple 1 yr.
