IDK. try to get your ECFMG certificate at least. But only if you pass CK this time. Your chances are very low, very low. If you fail again, just move on with your live and stop spending money on that.

Graduating in 2011 isn't old. What hurts you most is 2nd attempt.
What you can do to improve your credential is trying to find very good connections, which can bypass that lethal fact.
