it depends on how many universities you apply. Most universities do not offer more than 2 months of electives at a time. i did 2 months in one university and 1 month in an another. total of 3 months .

if you are on B1 , the maximum period you will be allowed to stay is 6 months. so, plan accordingly ! good luck..
