I am planning on transferring to MIT. To the School of Science, major in Biology or chemistry. Could a one tell me if my EC's will me frowned upon, because they have very little to do with science? These certifications where an economic choose not because I wanted to major in Computer Science or long career in IT. I am Med School hope full. Also could any one suguest any Ec's that would show I have a great interest in Science, other then reserch work, because I work after school.

My EC's are.
Play the piano
Mcse (Microsoft certified system engineer)
MCP (Microsoft certified Professional)
Mcsa (Microsoft certified system Administrator)
CCNP (Cisco certified network Professional)
CCNA (Cisco certified network Associate)
CCIE (Cisco certified internetwork Expert)
A very hard certification only 5000 in the whole word (CCIE). I have only passed the written exam.
Science Club
Received an Academic Scholarship

Volunteered at hospital= 90 hours

I don't know if work count as an EC, I have worked as a cashier, also at McDonalds and as Store manager and Van Driver.
