I have trouble reducing the space between the the title like LIST OF FIGURES, TABLE OF CONTENTS, etc., and the list body body in my thesis. I had the same problems with chapter headings, which I fixed by using \vskip -2.5 in each chapter. However, since the table of contents etc. are fixed by document class itself (my guess), I am not able to do this. I will appreciate any help on this.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem -- among other things, it will show which document class you use. – lockstep May 23 '13 at 14:44
  • You should post a minimal working example (MWE); that would tell which class you're using. In the book class, \listoffigures is defined to generate the list of figures after a \chapter* command. Therefore, instead of hardcoding \vskip ... after each chapter, you'd be better off changing the spacing of all chapter headings using the \titlespacing command from the titlesec package. Have a look there for more details. – jub0bs May 23 '13 at 18:37
