Jalbreakfast and Dra Foxy (or anyone else): You have both recommended keeping track of your applications using excel. I have a few questions. 1) What things did you put in excel that you felt were useful? 2) I am assuming excel is a spreadsheet program (sorry I am microsoft phobic so I don't know) 3) If it is a spreadsheet did you use any advanced spreadsheet features to track your apps or was it just a convenient "tick list"? Thanks for any advice...I am a very disorganized person so I am trying to be better about this whole med ap process!
