I just want to wish all of the medical students best of luck with the match- you've worked hard to get where you are, so I hope you see the fruits of your labors

For what it is worth, I think the cliche about residency is true- you get what you put into it. The quality of the residency program may pave the way more easily in some programs than others, but by far the biggest determinant of your long term success and happiness will be your personal effort, rather than where you go.

I mention this for a few reasons:
1. If you don't get into your top choice, or even one of your top choices, it probably matters far less than you might think.
2. If you are fortunate enough to get into your top choice, I would encourage you not to take the opportunity for granted. There is only so much the program can do to make a great experience for you- they can give you the ball, but they can't make you run with it.

Best of luck

That is very reassuring and pertinent advice rehab_sports_dr. Thanks, I'm sure, on behalf of most of us MS4's in one of the most nerve wracking (and fun) experiences of our education.
