Am I an MCSA?

Just curious...

I have passed:

A+
Network+
Security+
70-270
70-290
70-291 (just passed this today)

I read the page at microsoft:

http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcsa/windows2003/default.mspx

Passed 291 today and my completion is already on the certification planner in the MCP site, but it is not saying I am an MCSA in my transcript...possibly it takes a few days?

    It appears that you should be an MCSA. However, I wonder how you will be able to apply your A+ and N+? Is it automatic?
    From Security+ book by Sybex:

    there was a link in these forums (and on CompTIA) to use A+ / N+ / S+ as electives tward the MCSA / MCSE tracks, all comptia exams appear in the microsoft cert planner, thats why I am guessing it take a day or two for them to make the mcsa "offical"?

    You have to register your CompTIA exams with Microsoft, using the link that Webmaster provided. After that, they'll show up on your Microsoft transcripts as "Exam 00-000". Congratulations on passing the big, bad beast, and congrats on getting your MCSA.

    Congats!

    We have the same case. Slowhand is correct it will appear on your microsoft transcript as exam 000. But yesterday I sent an inquiry to microsoft (mcphelp) on how to receive my new MCSA 2003 welcome kit and receive their reply today that they have some technical problem. They promise to notify me in case they need additional information from me in coming days.

    From no certifications to MCSA it took me one year and one month.

    But I did take it VERY slow as I switched jobs and did not have a lot of free time to study.
