Cause she said I lied that I was going to school but i didn't go, and that would be asked me during my interview, am scared and what and how can I do about this?
You can certainly apply for permanent residency through marriage. You will have to explain why you did not go to school, if the officer determines you committed fraud you will need a waiver and can also have your application denied and sent to an immigration judge. Get help from an immigration attorney.
Your chance of success (permanent residence) depends upon your specific facts. The interviewing immigration officer will ask of you attended school and if you will have to explain this in detail. Your marriage will also be analyzed carefully and the officer will determine if they believe it is genuine or fraudulent. You may wish to obtain a second legal opinion so you fully understand your options.
