I would say your chances are fair, definitely better idea than 50%, though I'm not sure how programs would evaluate the AWA portion of the GRE. It depends on what programs you are applying to. If you're applying to high end programs like Harvard or Johns Hopkins, you might not get through. But mid level programs should accept you easily.

Also I recently started working on my SOPHAS application and was wondering if in the "add experiences " section is it worthwhile to add one month interships abroad? 

I did them towards the end of 2013 and each were of one month duration. Since they are so short and so long ago - is it much better to save myself the hassle of adding -supervisor details - contact them and refresh their memory  and just add it to my CV or does addition every tiny bit of what I've done in that section add weight to my application. Really baffled - any help is much appreciated

Hey guys, new to the forum. I'm from Mexico and I'm applying to a few MPH programs scattered throughout the world. I noticed most, if not all, of you guys are applying to grad schools in Canada, so I'll stay in topic. One of my applications is going to be for U of T for their MPH (Health Promotion) program. I'm really nervous, but so excited! It's actually my first choice, but I also know it's very competitive, so I won't get my hopes up.

Anyone else applying over there?
