I have been turned away because I didn't have an MCSE even though I had 
Cisco certs, loads of experience, an MCP in the required area, and 
other stuff.  They can be quite cruel for no reason and it makes no 
difference if you explain the relevancy in a kind or informative 

Luckily this problem will go away some time this month as I will 
finally have the MCSE... I am an MCSA.  This btw has been my longest 
running cert to get and I have plenty of certs of greater relevance.
