Question 3 Years After Graduation, Still a chance!

Can a person still get into residency even if she has been more than 3 years out of school since graduation? It's starting to worry me since people are saying that the Match is becoming so much more harder to get into.

Default Stay positive

Many people match even after like 5 years of graduation. With decent scores, some US clinical experience and some US LORs and publications you have a good chance of getting matched.
Best of luck
