Warning! Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation elective at Harvard

I have been offered an elective in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Harvard, with rotations in Spaulding Rehab., Boston.
I need to know if doing this elective in PM&R will help me in Neurology residency programs?
I considered PM&R as an elective option because, in my knowledge, PM&R deals with many acute neurological conditions and their rehab. apart from the musculoskeletal conditions. So, it should give a good exposure to neuro. patients and dealing with their management.
But will it help me in Neurology residency programs or not, as it requires a huge sum of money ($4500 tuition only) ???

P.S. I will be doing a paediatric epilepsy, and adult neuro elective at 2 other places as well.

Please opine.
Thank You
