Always choose electives with reference to the specialty to which you are interested in pursuing your residency.

Of about 20 people who did electives at northwestern the only departments that accepted IMGs were:
Pediatrics
Surgery
Dermatology
Radiology
There a very very very slim chance of getting into other departments.
