If it was a BCPM class, probably...if it was an elective or something non-science, they might or might not.....if you do get the chance to explain it to them, hopefully you'll have a good reason for withdrawing

Right. I'd also add that its not usually a big deal (presuming its an elective, etc.) so long as it doesn't become a pattern. You'll want to avoid more than one or two of these.

the OP said it was a final semester grade.

anyway, to answer the question, can't you just get at least a C? i think that would be better. however, if you really have senioritis really badly or you think you might fail, then just withdraw. i highly doubt they'll take away your acceptance. just to be sure, though, check with the specific schools in question.

Hope not. I getting a big ol' w in an art class(basic computer animation). Stupid idea to take it in the first place on top of volunteering and working.

One withdrawal in your entire transcript is probably fine. Ask your advisor. I withdrew from a lab and got into med school with no problem. They look at the big picture - your GPA, your MCAT, LORs, activities, essays. One W does not overpower the rest.
