Default Any OLD IMG preparing for usmle step 1 here?

Hey guys, i was just going to start preparing for step 1 but then read smthing related to OLD IMG on internet....So after reading that stuff found i am also on the brink of becoming OLD IMG by end of the next year...And i hv heard OLD IMG are not much welcomed and hv less chance for the residency in US even if you get through with gud score in all steps...

Is it true? So should i stop thinking about usmle exam now ??

Any oldies here who are in the same boat plz share your views .. Other docs here plz share ur views too if any of your known got the residency inspite of being an old IMG.....That wuld be a big booster....

2011 graduate.....Now 27 yrs

Hi man of Steel, I'm a old IMG finishing my preparation for step one. I can't speak for myself because haven't take any of the step yet, but I know about a lot of IMG's that are now in the residency, even though their graduation year pass by far the 5 years limit.
I'm not saying with this that is going to be easy but at lest is possible.
