Your Red Flag is big a gap since graduate! Step 1 and step 2 score might be lower than expected (to Program Directors) to be a competitive IMG.
When are you expecting Step 2 CS ( I am thinking you are late for this year Match if you haven't taken it)? So all you have to do next:
- pass CS 1 attempt
- Pass Step 3
- Strong LORs + USCE

We never know what happen so send your applications out as much as you could afford. Good luck!

Default don't be hopeless!

It is true that you have a huge gap, but try passing CS -1st attempt and step 3 and apply to community programs instead of university based programs
