Question Transitional year residency

hi everyone,
I have a question about transitional year residencies:
I have average score & I will apply to IM & FM but I'm thinking about applying to transitional year to get the USCE that most residency programs are asking for (I'm doing observership ,but most programs r asking for hands-on USCE)
I know that TY is supposed to be like prelim after which u apply to subspecialties like neurology,radiology etc..
but I'm thinking of it as a back-up plan in case I don't get matched
do u think it's possible to do that then apply next year to IM?
if yes,then what should I write in the personal statement for TY?
any feedback is highly appreciated..
