it really depends on how many withdrawals that you have on your record. i also withdrew from biochem (bc face it..its such a hard class) and not once was it mentioned in any of my interviews. however, i did retake the class and got an a, so maybe that has something to do with it..if you're really concerned though, you should email the schools you applied/got accepted to and tell them

I personally think one W is fine but just don't withdrawal from classes more than once! Make sure you are on track with finishing the prereqs

I was asked at one interview about a withdrawal...the funny part was that the class was Ballet. Obviously part of the core curriculum in Optometry! :) I'd forgotten I ever took it, so having to "explain" why I withdrew was pretty funny.
I think it is probably better to withdraw than fail the class, but assume they may ask you about it and maybe you should consider re-taking it just to be safe.

I agree, don't sweat it..I think 1 or 2 W's are fine. I would try to make sure you get at least a "B" however if I were to take the class over. Be prepared to explain about the W though, you'll never know! Gluck!
