College admissions guys aren’t so much interested in how many clubs or organizations you belong to, but they are interested instead in the quality of these groups and the level of your involvement with them.
You want to be able to show that you were a valued member of the organization.
You don’t want to look like you were just a follower who didn’t bring much to the party.
You can show your level of involvement to these organizations by being one of the group’s leaders or organizers, either through having a title or through the specific actions that you took.
Not all organizations are equal.
Some of the better ones include the National Honor Society, student council, yearbook, school newspaper, the debate team, and academic competitions and teams such as Mathletes.
