I volunteered at least 40 hours each year and was part of the leadership, so I was involved in my community. I speak English, Hindi, Panjabi and conversation in French. I have a job in the summer and watch the kids for a family weekend. I have not been involved in many sports from grade 8. I used to play volleyball, basketball, athletics, dance and shabby, but then my knee. However, I have the intention of playing hockey in Grade 11 and 12 to be more involved in high school athletics. My passions are photography, writing, the arts (both media and traditional). I took photography courses in the tenth grade and plan to take one in grade 12. I was writing club for three years and plan on making some of my work online and local press. I'm not musically talented but can play the guitar and flute. In grade 11 and 12, my goal is to keep my average over 96%. I am hard working and goal-oriented student and am interested in Law, Psychology and Business. I'm thinking of getting a part time job, as soon as I can get my own car (summer before 12th grade). I want to go to Penn State and get my Bachelor and Master of Laws. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of New York, while in a fellowship program with Skadden Arps. This will make my chances of working as a lawyer with Skadden Arps cooperate fully. I know the odds that everything works exactly as planned is unlikely, but this is what I'm working. Other universities I am considering are UBC (This is near where I live), McGill (In Quebec, school number one in Canada) and Harvard (But that will not happen so forget it) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Sorry for all the explanation, but, well, my questions:
MedlinePlus 1) I can get a full scholarship or partial scholarship to Penn State? MedlinePlus 2) Which course should I take first block D Semester? The rest you can take in the 12th grade. MedlinePlus 3) I did not do well in one of my provincial exams for Grade 10 (Low B). Will this affect anything? MedlinePlus 4) Is there anything I should do to improve my chances of getting into Penn State (or any other good college)?

You can not study law as a student in the U.S. You attend law school after completing only four-year degree graduate . You can increase your chances of acceptance at Penn State doing well in difficult courses ( AP courses take as many as you can manage ) and having a high SAT . Your chances of getting a full or partial scholarship to Penn State are slim because you are a foreign student . Foreign students must pay their own way to attend an American university . (Scholarships available teaching at the graduate level for students, but not at the undergraduate level . )
