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.

MCP (Microsoft certified Professional)
Mcsa (Microsoft certified system Administrator)
CCNP (Cisco certified network Professional)
CCNA (Cisco certified network Associate)
