Listening Choosing elective or observership or externship?

Hi everyone
I still have two years to graduate, so I am planning to get USCE next summer before I graduate, so which is better for USCE to do an elective, observership, research, or an externship in private clinic. by the way I am a foreign student

Dude, go for an elective, and aim for an ivy league institution, will have more weight plus while you are there, try and make as many friends as you can and be at your best behaviour..... pre matches wont be there when u apply, but still having contacts will help you tons...
you will find info on electives on their sites... good luck, take care....
