Question Are Observerships under-rated??

Is it true that doing obsies is a waste of time, as most Programs don't consider them as USCE? Do people who do only obsies 6- 8 weeks still end up matching with decent step 1 & 2 scores? Can anybody pitch in with some info on this

An observership is definitely good and is better than nothing but clinical hands on like externships will always be better I think
