Wait what? How can you count W's as F's? I had to withdraw from a few classes one semester because I had to increase my work hours in order to pay for school. We also didn't have A+, just A and A-.
I think it depends on how the school codes it. Some withdrawals are considered punitive (i.e will count as F's to LSAC) and some are non-punitive (won't count as F's). I withdrew from a class in college due to scheduling issues, but because I withdrew right at the beginning of the semester, I was in my school's grace period and got a non-punitive withdrawal. At least, that's how I think it all works.

Just my two cents: try not to get too wrapped up in the whole "Top 50" or "Top 100" or "Top Whatever" thing that the US News and World Report rankings peddle. You basically have Top 14 (national/semi-national) schools, and then you have your regionals (everything else.) Obviously, some regionals are better than others, but the point is most law schools are focused on a particular geographic area. If you're from, say, North Carolina and want to practice there, don't pick Boston College over UNC because Boston College is higher in the rankings. Focus more on where you want to work and target the best schools for that particular area.

Personally, I don't think you should be taking a lot of PTs until you've gotten the fundamentals down solidly. Take one just to get a baseline, and then just drill questions (with a special focus on whatever your weaknesses are) until you can really recognize the type of question and how to attack it. For example, "Ok, this is a sorting game, so step 1 is..." or "Ok, this a flaw question, so I look for..." Once you have mastered the basics, that's when you start doing PTs to work on timing.
