Tex....I honestly think that once you get there, you will have no problem with school. Especially the first year. You just need to figure out a good study plan and you'll be fine. You sound sooooo much like me it's not funny...Had mostly A's with a few B's in highschool....and you sound exactly like me when it comes to being able to focus. 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.

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.

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.Originally Posted by reaperx
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.
