Anyone else currently/ past President of a club other than a pre-med sort of club? And will you be putting that/have put that experience on your applications?

I held a Vice President and then president position for a club sport at my university and I definitely put that on my application in the extracurricular section. I am currently the treasurer for my podiatry class but I was told it doesn't matter too much residencies. The more you can add to your application the better, and leadership always looks good.

Don't be neurotic. If you put in the labor and its a leadership activity - list it.

It is definitly a feather in your cap, obviously it is not a golden ticket but it helps. It probably helps the biggest in interview material and essay material. Being a physician requires a lot of leadership and coordination, being a club officer shows you are capable and enjoy both.
