imo 1) its a university based programs, anytime better thn doing clerkships/observerships thru middle men..or doing observership with pvt practitioners.
2)i guess thts the standard rate for most of the observership programs..it wud b more reliable to pay money directly to the university thn to some1 else.
thts jst my opinion in doing it..and somethng is always better than nothing.
