Default griffin observership

Hello
I need some advice. I'll be applying to the 2018 match. I have an observership position at griffin health in Jan 2018. Should I take it? I dont see how it can be useful. Do interviews extend into the end of january?

So would it be pointless to take it up? or would it reflect well to mention that i have this rotation lined up? details are on their website. just google it

I would take it. In my opinion, if you apply to this hospital, you might have a better chance of matching to this hospital.

Would it be worth taking up a rotation with one of the agencies from sept to october before interviews start if im not doing anything else?

I have only 2 months of USCE and i will have already applied by the time i get an lor but will the experience help?
