Question Genuine or NOT!

In the poll there are many externship companies that have very less to zero votes like and

I've tried lots of places and was not able to find Hands on USCE till date.

How do i know that they are genuine and not a scam? Has anyone here used their services? They are cheaper than the other BIG names like americlerkships and chicagoclerkships and IMGprep. 8-9k for 3 months is extremely expensive.

Well i'm not sure about the other agency but i used the imedmatch one. I was with another agency previously before switching. I actually went with this agency because my parents who are doctors didn't like I was paying money for basically an shadowing or observatory work at someones clinic, so they forced me to look for a greenbook and bluebook ACGME certified rotation instead. Trust me looking for an agency with that requirement was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Other agencies I looked wouldn't guarantee me that. The agency also had a FREE USMLE step 1 review that i was able to go to while I was rotating there. I saw another one in my group go to USMLE step 2 CS review while she was there, which i was surprise they gave in addition since the price was already the lowest i could find for an agency, which i think was a plus.
