eighty characters a line

I don't think it is going to cost you any specific number of points. I would suggest keeping it at or below 80 cpl just for the sake of readability unless you have a good reason not to. You could lose a few points if the source code looks jumbled and hard to read. I think elegant source code is one of the criteria they judge on, though certainly not one of the most important. I spent a LOT of time cleaning up my source code after finishing development in Visual Age for Java.
