It varies by what they mean by within 3 years of graduation. Because if they mean within 3 years of graduation (from the presumed start date of your internship next year), then you would not make the cut. You could find out what exactly they mean when they say that. Also, if your overall profile is great then programs could be willing to overlook the requirement (unless they filter your application without looking at it because of the requirement).

What about contacting some programs you are interested in ? If you send an email make sure they understand that you do not fully understand their criteria and you need an explanation. Do not make it too personal such as "would you consider my application if ..." because they could say they can not answer your question as it would be considered a preselection (which is illegal) - I made that mistake myself.
