bad freshman year

What if you did realllly bad freshman year? (you had a lot of issues) but then you improve real good later on? Does that one year put you out of the running for the more selective colleges?

<p>Having a bad freshman year doesn't neccessarily mean you have no chance at selective colleges, that post-freshman improvement is something colleges really like to see and improves your admission chances. Stanford doesn't even count freshman year in admission.</p>

<p>University of Michigan Ann Arbor doesnt look at Freshman grades... As long as you've improved since then.. you're in luck.</p>
