How do I plan the vertical layout of a subway tile backsplash

I've seen lots of discussion on the horizontal layout and setting the tiles so I don't get a small sliver at the end of the backsplash, but what about the vertical? I'll be installing a subway tile backsplash from the countertop up to the bottom of the cabinets. If I do a test layout I see in going to get a sliver of tile at the very top, right under the cabinets. Not a big deal it seems since you really can't see under the cabinets because the bottom of them is at around chest height. But what is generally done here?
