Question Neurology elective/LOR- useful for a peads/IM residency application?

Would an elective in neurology be useful for someone who wants to pursue a residency in pediatrics or internal medicine?
A friend of mine got accepted into an elective at Yale....and she was just wondering if it would make a good contribution to her CV.

i have a question along similar lines and I posted it on the forum too-
Externship - IM or Neuro?
Something is better than nothing. An elective in another specialty is not ideal but it is still USCE. Though I think an LOR from neuro wouldnt be helpful in IM or Peds. Most programs want to see LORs frm same specialty...
