OPT Starting date on 4/1?

I will graduate from college with a degree in Computer Science in March next year (my college follows the quarter system), and want to start my job as soon as possible in April. So from talking to advisors in my college, I should choose a starting date after April 1 to allow for future H-1B opportunities.

Can anyone clarify why this is the case for me? It seems like April 1 marks the first day of a new H-1B cycle? I did online research about this but didn't get a definite answer. Would appreciate if anyone could help.

Also, should I choose April 1 or April 2 for my starting date? Thanks a lot!
