I would have been a lot more high achieving if I did not need to transfer out the week before my Committee of Academic Performance hearing…

I can tell you what did not help, the stupid planner they gave me when I asked for help from the Student Support Services office. When I transferred from MIT to UMass, they picked up that I needed an eval immediately. My gpa went from a 2.7 to 3.7. I did a self-study twice, once in school and once a few years ago. I am about 6 times more productive on meds versus off on similar workload tasks.

Here is a good reference to see if a high achiever may have ADHD.
