Interview with big bank, how to market a science/tech major?

I'm basically a lab rat who took some introductory business classes, and I'm sure this shows on my resume. Should I be playing up my life sciences background or dig deeper into my extracurriculars and work experience in business to make up for my lack of finance/accounting classes? Any advice would be helpful.

Figure out how your life sciences classes apply to banking. Not in the work you do, but the skills learned/required to succeed at both. A computer science major could speak to critical thinking and a formulative thought process for example. This lets you both stand out from the other finance majors and show you're capable of working within finance.
