  If you really are interested to do externships, you need to do more researches about the programs before you pay your money. At lease I read very, very bad stories about Americlercship. You need to contact the people who posted these bad complaints and find out if all of these are true.

  Years later, and they are still no better. About to take to small claims court for breaking our contract. Too bad I didn't read all of these before! And unfortunately, most students are too busy to fight back.

I'd also recommend this blog post for some DOs/DONTs when dealing with these types of companies.

And if you need to escalate maters, AMS is based in Irvine, CA which is in Orange County. Their small claims legal office information can be found at
http://www.occourts.org/self-help/smallclaims/
http://www.ocsmallclaims.com/
And their advisers do give a 30 minute free legal advice service 714-571-5204

Hope this prevents others from the hell I've gone through the past few months.

  Americlerkship is a fraud!! There is no other word to describe what these people did to me.
I’ll briefly describe my experience. I purchased AMC service on May/2018, On Jun 2018 I contacted them to cancel the externship due to: matched into a residency program.
After a whole month. Many emails, phone calls and text message not answered: they Decided that they will issue a “credit on file” for the 10,000 (total purchase almost 13000) for me to use in their services.
Attention!! I'm not lying, If anyone needs proof of what I'm saying here, just contact me, I”ll be happy to provide it.
Here ill transcribes a fraction of their Life-LONG recital (contract), found in the page number 22 out of 30, regarding the refund policy. Hopefully, this will help to someone not to fall in their trick.

…….AS SUCH, MEMBER AGREES THAT REFUNDS DO NOT APPLY TO FINAL SALE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SUCH AS CSPD, AND THAT HE/SHE IS NOT ENTITLED TO ANY REFUND OR CREDITS OR EXCHANGES IN CASE OF CANCELLATIONS OR NO-SHOWS OR ANY OTHER CHANGES CAUSED BY THE MEMBER, UNLESS EXPRESSLY PERMITTED IN WRITING BY AMS.
