Anybody knows how I can remove the spacing before my itemized list?

 {\bf main text }\hfill{year}\\
    \item[$\square$] item 1
    \item[$\square$] item 2
    \item[$\square$] item 3
    \item[$\square$] item 4\\

Never use \\ at the end of a paragraph or before a display constrict such as a list or equation, TeX will warn about such use with a warning about badness 10000 (it's maximum measure of bad typesetting) and produce a spurious extra line of the paragraph which looks like vertical space but is not space and does not combine with vertical space in a useful way.
