Hey there!

One thing I've found, both for myself and for one of the sixteen-year-olds I tutor for a living, is that as long as your motivation doesn't have to come from inside you, things could work out just fine. Find someone to poke you when you need it. This might take the form of an individual, one-on-one study buddy, but full-on support or peer coaching groups could provide a wealth of further tips and, well, support.

I expect most US colleges will have their own student-run AD/HD coaching groups already, but if need be, you can seek out fellow diagnosed students and start one yourself.

If you need to be reminded, I could PM you about it.
