I should also add that the "Applicants in Process" page does not show
all those applicants that got through in a month or less: by its very
nature (it shows applicants in process, not applicants processed) if one
looks at that page one would mainly see those applications that get
stuck on something for a reason or another.

That is to say, that page is in no way representative of the average
experience with the NM process.

Advocacies are now reviewed by Front Desk before being accepted.
If a non-uploading DD advocates somebody for having upload rights we'll
just, as usual, read it and see if we should ask for more information or
more advocates before assigning to an AM.

Likely it will be the case, but the world being crazy and unpredictable,
I wouldn't be surprised if some rare case happened when it will be
perfectly clear that that won't be needed.
