Low grade in Econs in first year of Undergrad [#permalink]

Guys need some help here. I was waitlisted at Michigan in the first round. Do you think it could be due to a D grade that I got in economics in my first year of undergrad? I had explained my not so stellar grades in the first year in my optional essay. But could this be one of the reasons? Also what can I now do to overcome this? Is it possible to take a module in economics in a local university. I am actually in Singapore, and I don't know how I can do it here. I can give updates to Michigan regarding my waitlist. How do I address this issue? Do I talk about it in my update? Any ideas are most welcome!

I dont think one D would be the reason for your waitlist, especially if you wrote an optional essay explaining the situation. Without looking at your whole package, it is very difficult to guess the reason for your WL. In any case, a WL is probably a result of your relative strength in the app pool and NOT based on your package alone. If you are really keen, you can probably take the course and ace it, but IMHO it may not make any impact.
