Default Elective directly through a university or a third party?

Hello everyone..

I just wanted to know if going for an elective directly though a University better than going through a third party. What advantages would it have during my application processing?
Actually, there are few options available through medclerkship and americlerkship but I need to know if they would be more beneficial. I even have applied to Universities directly.But wanted opinions.

Thank you
