Default elective rotation

hey, i saw your post about how it is very difficult to find an elective rotation in the US. I was wondering if you ever got lucky enough to find an elective rotation that accepts IMGs?

If you don't mind me asking, which hospitals did you do your paid clerkships?
Where did you end up matching at?
