What are spring vs fall MS in CS differences?

What are spring vs fall MS in CS differences? If I start during spring my first summer cannot do any co-op due to CPT rules. What can I do durring that duration?

So, I would recommend coming in fall. So in that way you will have opportunities to do CO-OP or internship in the summer. But if you come in the spring, you cannot do anything. Either you can take courses or sit at home. That’s the only thing you can do. Perhaps, do part time jobs at your universities. Those three are the options you have.
