Not to be a buzzkill but this is Step 1 in a 20 step process. If you go look at the CARMS threads the residency match is far from "set for life"

To be fair, this is not step 1. This is step 100000000. Every EC and grade and the application, and my previous rejections were steps towards this dream that will hopefully culminate in an acceptance. Once in, it's really hard to flunk out of med school, not to say it won't be a challenging four years. The only real hurdle after is, as you've said, matching. According to the CaRMS website, the match rate for CMGs in 2017 was 96.5%. It's not perfect, and many don't match to their #1 specialty and location. BUT considering that you have job security after for life unlike in many other professions, and I'll be doing what I love, I'm happy with it. This is my dream, I'm not about to start complaining before the real journey even begins. I guess I'm just an optimist.
