AM? What AM? ;)

I entered NM on 2005-09-13, got advocated on 2005-09-18, still waiting for
an AM for >6 months now, whereas other NMs, who applied a month after me,
already got an AM. 

I'm beginning to believe that comments like "You're entering NM? Hahaha!" or
"Your chances are minimal" (from various people involved in that process)
are true. Maybe I'm a little too paranoid, but I start thinking about
withdrawing my application again.... It will depend on the new DPL as some
candidates mentioned NM process in their platform.
