Third year elective grade

I had a question for PDs and those in the know: how are elective rotations weighed during third year? I just got my ortho elective grade and was given a pass - I believe you can either pass or honor your elective, there is no high pass. I'm upset as the feedback I got from attendings and residents was positive, and I'm getting LORs from two attendings I rotated with.
My third year grades other wise have been all HPs and H in core rotations, and I just finished a fourth year audition rotation and was told (again) that I did well.
As soon as I am able I find out who evaluated me and (politely) ask them for feedback, but there is not time to appeal my grade if they made a mistake before ERAS is due.
Am I done?

I wouldn't worry too much about it. There is such high variability from schools in terms of grades. More importantly, do well in the rest and hopefully your Step 1 score is pretty good. I think finding out why they gave you a pass is probably more important so that whatever it is, you can improve on it.
