SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi. I am a first year. I am working my ass off and giving my all and even after all of that getting "B's" in most of my classes. A lot of my class members are parts of clubs and are class representatives and stuff like that, but I am worried that if I devote time to anything other than studying, I will get C's in my classes. To those in residency... how much did getting involved in a club during the school year help you in getting a residency? I know I am not going to be in the top 15% of my class (even though I do nothing but study).... and really just want to make sure that I can land a 3 year residency program somewhere and have a good career... Essentially... will I be at disadvantage to others when applying to residencies if I am not involved in clubs? I am just really worried that if I get involved my grades will suffer. Thanks for any insight.
