Work hard in high school. It really is not too hard to get into Penn State, especially if you are a Pennsylvania resident. If you are serious about applying to Penn State and chose to major in the biological sciences, I would advise applying to the Schreyer's Honors College Program; class sizes are significantly smaller with more grade opportunities and the professors overall do care more about students in those types of classes.

Getting in isn't very hard, and you will find once you're here that the academic competition isn't very high. there are some very brilliant people, but it also seems like in the more challenging classes almost half of the students eventually drop the class and have to take it over again
ACT: 30 SAT: 1850 Male

I would recommend that you DON'T apply especially if you're international, these assholes are f**king racist!

Not much really. A composition, transcripts from High School, SAT scores, and that's all.

Study hard in high school. If you have the opportunity to go to a branch campus, STRONGLY consider doing so. Competition in basics with 300+ students is cutthroat!!
SAT: 1420 Male
