    Not nearly enough info to say "yes" or "no". It depends on the course, faculty, any other experience or qualifications you have....

    I did 3 AS and 2 A2, but I also had 3 diplomas as well.

    You'd be unlikely to get a decent scholarship with just 1 A2 level (which, when a uni degree in the US can cost upwards of £250,000, it a bit of a blow to the balls!)*

    Being a US citizen makes a massive difference.

    Good O levels (or GCSEs, as they're called now!), is also good.

    Extra curricular activities, including voluntary work, is all stuff that helps compliment your academic resume and counteract a lack in certain HE qualifications.

    If I were you, I would wait for a year, and spend that time offering your services-for-reference to law firms as an assistant on some cases relevant to you, which should help seal a deal.

    US law is graduate entry only.

    PoliSci/IntRel may work for a BA.
