Default Greetings , an important question regarding electives

I tried being accepted to an elective in US, but i failed . i am a final year medical student , the hospitals say that they take oteopathic universities and such .

Now , if i don't have an elective , how much are my chances to get accpeted in the match for IMED ?

I didn't take the steps yet , just asking

I am a bit frustated , afraid that i have no hope to match with no elective or observation .

So, how much are an IMGs chances to get matched in IMED with no elective or observation ??
