You have to ask yourself, what do you truly want?
I think it is still relatively easy to get >= 4k offer as a fresh graduate nowadays even if you aren't a top tier software engineer candidate.
Let's say if I would want to continue to be a software engineer, I will foresee myself trying to look for non-technical roles as I know that I do not want to do coding in the long run. If that's the case, what are the companies do you think I can get away with my poor CS knowledge in their interviews? Those interviews that requires a strong CS knowledge makes me hesitate to apply due to me being an intern now with not much leave to go for these interviews.
