There was an IMG doctor who matched in Neurology program in Upstate New York who was 28 years away from graduation. He was a practicing Cardiologist for 21 years in his home country.....having said that he had his daughter who was a resident in the same program.....and I am talking about this happening 4-5 years ago.
The bottom line is if you have great reference you can still make into a program
Good luck

You might want to go to the programs personally (if you dont have any refernce) , then probably go for post- match SOAP!
Good luck!
