Default IMG, graduated in 2003, what are my chances to get into IM residency?

Hey guys,

What are my chances of getting matched into IM residency being 11+ years after med school?

I am an IMG, graduated from med school in Kiev in 2003, planning to take Step 1 in March 2015.

My short story - Did internship in preventative medicine in Ukraine, then got accepted into graduate school in the US, got my Master's degree in 2006 and PhD in 2011 in cell molecular biology. Published OK. Currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular genetics. I've started shadowing in December 2013. Would greatly appreciate your input on what are my chances to be even considered for IM residency?

Thanks a lot
