I am an old IMG too. I checked the statistics and they were not in my favor. But... Will keep at it. God bless to us. We are not the only 2 old IMGs applying for match this year.

You have a good Step 1 score, and maybe you need more USCE. That can give you some contacts, which is essential in this process.
I've seen old IMG's (YOG >10 years) matching in Psych, if that helps.
