If you have 12 months or more of full time CPT, you are ineligible for OPT, but part-time CPT is fine and will not stop you from doing OPT

Part time cpt does not effect u r opt under current process .. It is always safe to limit u cpt less than 12 months ..

You can utilize any no. of months in PART TIME CPT.
only Full Time CPT > 12months will reduce OPT months.

Correct me if I am wrong . 24 months of part time cpt is considered as full time cpt . Please check with your dso
