Hospital Bluebook elective

I needed some advice.
So far I have done 4 cores, which are all greenbook. I was offered a four week elective, which is bluebook. The clinical coordinator said that if your electives are bluebook, it doesn't matter as long as the cores are greenbook.
So I wanted to know how true that is?
How much of an effect will it have when applying for residency?
Should I go through with the elective or opt for a greenbook elective?

Please advise!
Thank you!

Arrow It's OK you can do bluebook electives

It won't have an effect on your residency.
