Bootstrap Select Option Default Value

How can I set a default value on a bootstrap select option?

I want the option Total Points to be selected on default.

          <select ng-model='discussionsSelect' class='form-control'>
            <option value='total'>Total Points</option>
            <option value='created'>Created</option>
            <option value='read'>Read</option>
            <option value='replied'>Replied</option>

You could try using the 'selected' attribute to have Total Points selected on page load:

<option value='total' selected>Total Points</option>
