Can Please someone advise me on this:

I am an IMG who attempted step 3 three years ago in a rush with incomplete preparation as I had to leave states in a month, Now I want to go back to applying to residency can I apply with this step 3 result and have a chance?

I think you know the answer to this question. Not saying it's impossible, but there are several factors working against you:

1) residency programs are objectively eval based on board passing rate. Increasing failed rate, esp at programs with historically not so great pass rate,For the past 3 years I was the director of an educational services company that specialized in helping candidate like you. I don't think I have ever seen a case of candidate who has a failed attempt that was not remedied and matched.
