Yes, you can pre-select a drop down via the query string.
- Edit the drop down field
- Select the Advanced tab
- Check the "Allow field to be populated dynamically" checkbox
- Give it a parameter name (parameter is what is used in the querystring, so if you wanted to pass myFruit=orange to the form the parameter name you would use would be myFruit)
- Save your form
Now when you link to the page containing the form if you pass that parameter name to it in the query string and give it a value equal to one of the drop down choices, it will be pre-selected.
Please note parameters are case sensitive. So if you use myFruit it won't accept myfruit.
