I've seen people with impressive lists of extracurricular activities and leadership positions, and it made me wonder if I have to join more organizations in which I could demonstrate leadership. First of all, there is a club that I have been involved with since Freshman year, it's just an on campus school club. But I took an "officer" position Sophomore year as the club historian, and that may not sound like much, but I carried a lot of weight in handling club responsibilities, and I became president of that club this year. Our club adviser has seen how much work I've put in since Freshman year, and I am confident that he will write me a good recommendation, talking about my leadership abilities and potential, if I asked him to. The club was nearly dead my freshman year, but my friends and I put a lot of work into it build up a dedicated membership base, and we have accomplished a lot through community service and fundraisers ^_^. Also, my coach is making me captain of the girl's varsity soccer team. Various other clubs around campus, like NHS and CSF (California scholarship federation) the officer positions are traditionally given to seniors. I plan to take an officer position in both these clubs as well as becoming captain of the decathlon team my Senior year (next year). I guess it's somewhat of a quantity or quality thing and I was wondering if the admissions officer would care more about the quality of my leadership or the amount of leadership positions I've taken. From what I understand, something that goes into determining my leadership potential and abilities are the extra recommendation letters, which I plan to get from my coach and the club adviser, plus a lady who's organization I do a whole load of independent community service for. Should I stick with what I'm doing and planning to do, (take a leadership position in NHS, CSF, become captain of decathlon, captain of soccer team, and possibly stay an officer of the club) or should I join extra organizations outside of school and seek for leadership positions there? I also want to make it clear that I am very much not interested in "padding" up my resume, but I am just worried that my lack of leadership positions in sophomore and junior year would affect me negatively.
