As an alumni, here are my pure thoughts:

Software Engineer route:
- Endless job opportunities
- Extremely high pay nowadays if you can crack tough technical interviews
- GPA isn't as important, it's all about CS knowledge and whiteboard coding to get top high paid jobs
- Easier to go from technical to non-technical route, but not the other way around
- Downside is if you can't crack interviews, you can only end up in low paid companies like NCS
- I think you need passion to keep upgrading technical skills, which isn't align with what you mentioned
- Not everyone becomes a Project Manager, but senior software engineers at top tech companies can be paid as much
