Many people have told me I need to be put on ADHD medicine (even my parents), Im just not too fond of taking an amphetamine for the rest of my life...

    Anyways Im an Accountant so I went through Business School with no problem and I am just about ready to finish my Masters of Taxation. I had a 3.7 undergrad and I have a 3.9 in grad school.

    The BIGGEST thing in my opinion is not to let all the distractions of college life get to you and maintain a proper balance of leisure & study.
    If I were to take something though, I definetley would go for some bulk Piracetam & Choline Citrate. I have seen a lot of positive feedback on these 2 items and you can find them fairly cheap.

    Good luck bro, and don't sweat it.

    agree completely...if you can manage that properly your set

    ALCAR couldn't hurt. I'd give you advice....but with my cumulative 2.7 GPA you probably wouldn't want my advice.

    I will say that no employer has ever asked for my GPA and once you have your first real job after college nobody even cares where you went to school, unless maybe its Ivy League or something.

    Study. It is free. There are no shortcuts to success. (that never seems to stop people from looking anyway).

    I study 20-25 hrs each week on top of working full-time for grad school.


    No drugs can mimic that effect.

    Another tip, make sure you write/do assignments in such a way that your professor will agree with them. They may be a back asswards hippy, but you've got to please them to get a good grade. Sadly, many professors aren't as unbaised as you may hope and as they may think.

    Also make sure you use ratemyprofessors.com
    You'll probably have TAs your first year since you'll be taking freshmen level classes, but once you move up to 200, 300, 400 level classes you should get more time with an actual professor. Just talk to upperclassmen as much as you can about each professor you're taking.

    i would just advise you to study all the time and don't fall behind in any of your classes. its best to get tight with some classmates that you can occasionally work/cheat with and try to find out how easy/tough your classes might be according to what professor you choose before signing up for classes. if you don't understand some material ask for help or go see a tutor. go to ratemyprofessors.com and see what other students at your school have rated professors at your school. i highly recommend that site before signing up for classes.

    ratemyprofessor is a godsend. Seriously, look into each professor you plan on taking.

    Sorry reaper, I usually agree with you but would have to say dextroamphetamine is a helluva substitute. Got put on that by my physician for a week until seeing a psychologist, hell of a study aid, I could concentrate on schoolwork for hours upon hours. It actually seemed to "interest" me into studying and would not bore me like it normally did. Don't take it anymore though.

    Surprisingly i've been able to maintain over a 3.5 cumulative GPA going into Junior year with minimal studying. I have the phenomenon of being able to be focused on things that interest me for hours upon hours but can't read for 5 minutes in a textbook without loosing focus... it's frustrating.

    Good luck tex, and if you have any comp sci, or criminal justice questions don't hesitate to PM me, we are starting classes in about 3 weeks.

    provigil (modanifil) works best for me- it is a non-stim anti-adhd medication- it allows you to focus for hours on end. it also has some other added benefits- it will take your workouts to a whole other level as well....I just wrote a 1,200 page SOI for our MFG. facility and a 3,000 page validation master plan over the course of 12 weeks- I can literally block out pretty much all distractions while I am taking it

    I think the SOIs and VMF can serve very well as a sleep aid- you can start reading this stuff and completely glaze over in less than 10 minutes- pretty boring stuff
