There is no age limit. Even if you are 70 yrs old, you can do the steps and apply for residency.
In fact, it's illegal in the United States to discriminate job opportunities based on age limit!

The question is do you have chances of getting interviews at this age? the answer is that your chances are much much lower than fresh grads but it's not zero, many old grads have made it into residency.
