Officer Positions

<p>At my school personally (I don't know about other schools), "officer positions" are available only for those students that are popular because they are elected by a vote. Since I'm not as popular as some other students, I don't get elected to officer positions in clubs such as NHS and Foreign Language Club. I've heard numerous times that participation in a club isn't significant enough to be on your college application and that you should only put it if you're an officer. But officer elections are a popularity contest...our Class President got arrested for public intoxication at a concert and was allowed to remain on, if that's any indication. I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to look like I lack leadership skills because I'm not as well-liked as some people at my school. </p>

<p>Anybody else have this problem? Should I just put my clubs on my app anyway?</p>

<p>Solution: Get more popular?</p>
