Calendar latest date to look forward for interview invitation

Hi guys.
I am an IMG. Quite old graduate. Scores - step 1 - 227, step 2 - 213, CS second attempt, preparing for step 3 and hope for better result, one observership and one externship in private doctor's offices for a month each, need visa, no publication, no study, no research experience. Still don't have any interview invitation. This week was especially active for rejections, but the last 2 days there is a silence, no rejection received. Would you please tell me if I still haven't received any invitation, what is the chance to receive one later? Please help if someone had any such kind of experience or was in similar situation.

My question is reflecting yours. So, how many programs will not respond at all (known as silent rejection), like 50%, 70 or 80%. I have the same silence for 2 days and it scares me.
