Paper Authorship

Hi. I have a few questions about paper authorship: If I am only a co-author and not the first author of a published high-profile paper that has been cited hundreds of time, could I use the paper to justify my application? Also, say that I have 10 published papers but only one of them is a first author paper, would this weaken my application? Does paper authorship matter at all?

Thank you very much! I find your website very helpful.
