How does one adjust their sleep schedule when their body wont let them? For example, for the past week I've been going to bed at around 2 and waking up at around 11am on average. Now I have to train myself to wake up at 6:30 am and my body wont go to sleep at 10 or so and I cant get the required sleep...what can I do?

You have to just get up at the time you need to get up. So get up @ 6:30 am, no matter what time you went to bed. You will get tired earlier, due to lack of sleep, so go to bed earlier in response. It will take a few days, at least, but its about the only way to really do it.
It'll take about 14 days to 'reset' your clock, don't remember where I heard that though.

Takes around 1 day per hour that you adjust it. Brought to you by your friendly amature psychologist.
IMO, dont nap when you feel tired the next day. Hold out until 10 and try to crash, you should sleep better.
