I don't know if it's the case here, but instead of waiting one better
makes sure one will get accepted eventually by doing lots of great work
and asking a lot of DDs things to get your work done (like sponsoring)
so they'll ask DAM to process you first :-)
I think one possibility is that one has to wait long because DAM isn't
sure yet whether they will accept you or not. So if you make sure you're
very active at that moment might help... while sending mails about
'waiting' and 'disproportional' won't help for sure...
