Default Elective experience...?

I want to know if having a majorly outpatient clinical experience can negatively affect my application? I haven't taken step 1 yet and i can't find a lot of colleges that offer great electives. FIU/Herbert Wertheim says their electives are majorly on an outpatient basis. Is it worth applying? Of course I'll be doing observerships later on, but I haven't graduated yet so I can easily go for electives; I just need to know the kind of experience they're looking for. I'm also trying for UAB and Cornell but I don't think they are easy to get into... :/
