Noob question here: is there a typical way set up to learn from people at your school who matched well how they made it happen? Do schools offer some kind of network to graduates for asking stuff like that, or provide info to current students if you want to speak with someone you spotted on their match list?

Every medical school wants its students to succeed. They will provide you with resources and advisors to help you explore your specific interests within medicine, identify training centers that might be a good fit for you, and help you make your residency application the best it can be.

I'll slightly disagree with @Goro... as a premed, you should already appreciate the networking you have as an undergrad to learn from people who made it to medical school, using your network with alumni who might have succeeded in matching or practicing in a desired specialty. Typically the prehealth office is there to help you.
