I plan on playing my first OTB USCF or FIDE tournament this year, how do I know which rating section to enter?

The primary reason for this endeavor is to see how close I can get to 2500(ish)+ USCF this year. I’m thinking that I’ll start in the 2000(ish) section and see where things go from there. But as a general rule of thumb, if you haven’t actually touched a chess piece in years and have never played an OTB tournament, which rating section should you enter?
