Which residency are you talking about? In general I think it's important because you get to network (ADEA, asda). Also showing leadership is never a bad thing. I think it is only a positive on your resume. That being said.... I don't really know of anyone in my class that got into any speciality program without showing any sort of ec.

These questions are really hard to answer. Maybe @setdoc7 has some insight. I think showing involvement is good, leadership positions is even better, but ultimately grades and specialty specific interest/activity trump all.
Thanks that's what I was looking for.
