Should a coarse of brick be level or pitched?

LEVEL! All other courses of brick will be based off the first. Thus, without this being level your corners will not be square. If you need to make up for height differences, you should "step" the brick. They should be level because at some point, your brick rows will come in contact with something that IS level (like a window) and it will look extremely odd to not have a constant joint underneath the window.
