Will a W hurt me?

I withdrew from biology this semester because of personal issues (I withdrew from half of my courses that weren't my major and switched to CR/NC for the rest of my major courses). I thought that a W would be better than an F (as I could not complete my course schedule as intended), but I was wondering if the W would look bad in and of itself if I take the class next semester and ace it?

That exactly what the W is for.

But you could have failed the course and still end up in med school.
