    So I'm curious whether I need more leadership positions. I have leadership positions in clubs/extracurriculars I enjoy doing.

    -Model UN Co-president
    -Key Club Class Representative/Officer
    -Science Olympiad Captain

    Is this competitive/admissible enough? I know the quality vs quantity concept, but seeing impressive resumes all over the internet, I can't help but think if I'm lacking. Opinions, anyone?

    What you have is fine. Not everyone can be a team captain, but the fact that you have some leadership experience in meaningful activities should mean that the leadership box is at least checked. I say this a lot but in terms of improving your application the most "cost-effective" area on which to focus -- and by this I mean the area in which a modest input of time can result in significant gains -- is bringing up your board scores, since they are the single biggest weighting factor.
