Keep in mind that the reader of your application will not spent a long time evaluating your activities and in a highly selective to selective process will assign a rating to your activities. Joining a club or a school sponsored group right before senior year is in most cases a bad idea unless that club / group is new.
The reader is looking for commitment, leadership and some reasons why you belong to the club or group ( how is all of this connected in the application?). Evaluating an application is subjective and many schools have two readers for each app and if the rating are really different from each other then the Director of Admission will read the app and assign rating numbers to courses, grade point average, recommendations, essays, activities , scores , rank in class and expressed interest in the school.
Thanks for the question , it is a good one. Best wishes for this year.
