You can return to Jamaica at any time. You will be subject to a 10 year bar if you overstated your visa for more than 12 months. That is an automatic bar which is imposed when you depart the United States.

This is way too broad an inquiry to be addressed in this forum. Talk to you college counselor; better yet, if you know an attorney, see if he or she will take time to talk about these subjects with you.
