Default yup

as long as you have a US clinical experience with strong letter of recommendation it doesnt really matter where you got experience from..
but at the same time it makes a little more difference if you have your rotations done in well known hospital such as like john hopkins or columbia.. these are just example though.. but all you need is a USCE with strong letters... it will help..

Yes it will be important for your application. But of course, do it in a university hospital has more weight, and you have the opportunity of get LOR s of academic physicians

USCE in a good university is any day better than working in a private clinic through an agency. Moreover for some big universities like Johns Hopkins and Mayo there is no fee for the elective, the elective is free ( for mayo step 1 is required). You also get the opportunity to make contacts. Something is better than nothing so private clinic is fine too incase one doesnt get accepted in univ.
