Hospital Observership at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA

Hi! Has anyone done observership at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA? It is pretty expensive (2000 USD). I wanted to know if doing an obervership there is of any help. They said they do not provide LORs. But my friend told me they usually interview their observers.

I am still considering whether to apply or not. How many months prior to the starting date should I apply?
