You haven't missed the boat at all. I work now, and have worked with many professionals who have undergraduate degrees in something other than architecture. Check out Harvard and MIT, I'm fairly certain they offer MArch programs for "non-BArch" people (i.e. you have a degree in a non-architecture related field). Many institutions reserve slots for people just like you so that they can add depth to their student body. When I went there, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offered something called the "Track 3" program, which supplemented the graduate curriculum with undergrad courses. Look also at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

You should expect to be in graduate school for three or more years, and professional experience before graduate school will help you not only solidify your ideas about the profession and your choices of study, but will also bolster the odds of your gaining admittance into a top-tier program.
