I'm just about ready to start sending my YA fantasy novel out to agents. The word count is 66,682. When pitching it, should I round the number up to 67,000 or to 70,000, or should I round it down to 65,000? What would be proper?

I always heard you should round it to the nearest 1000. So, 67,000, unless things are different now.

I round to the nearest 1,000 as well.
