Difficulty for brand new sites

I'm curious if a site being brand new hurts its chances with being accepted to AdSense. I created a website for the NFL draft, which was professional in layout and contained no dead links or under construction parts. AdSense considered it, but ultimately rejected it.
I'm curious if the fact that it's not yet listed in Google is a contributing factor for exclusion, or if it's unrelated. It's entirely possible that Google simply wanted the site to contain more content before it signed off on it. But I have other new sites that I'm considering applying for with AdSense, and I'd like to know ahead of time if they'd risk being rejected because of not being indexed yet...

I'm sure this has been discussed already, but a bit of advice:
1. If you are applying for adsense, submit your "best" suited site, not the brand new one you just made.
2. It helps if your site has a decent (3-4+) pagerank. They seem to approve you faster, if nothing else.
3. When you estimate impressions on the application, estimate the combined total of ALL your sites, not just the one you are applying in the name of. If you read the instructions carefully, that's what they really want to know.
Remember, you are applying for an account for your business, not for a specific site. Give'em the best example.
If you get rejected, don't bother replying to ask for info on why. You'll just get a serious of form letters telling you in essence to read the FAQ.
Don't be afraid to apply again keeping the above in mind if you get rejected the first time.

Could be the answer there.
With a new site you have no idea on what traffic it will generate. From memory when I applied, I think they were looking for 100,000 impressions plus per month (bit hazy on the figure)
Putting it differently, if $100 is the minimum payout, then they would appear to be looking for minimum $100 per month from you (or 100,000 impressions if they costed at $1 CPM ;) )

How are you rexperiences in gettign a second account on a new site to be able to split earnings and stats properly?
I got rejected on one of my sites and accepted on another. Now I'm launching anew site and it'S really a seperate business (different partners) and I need split accounting. I hope they give me an account on the new site.
PS: been spidered but not listed, what'S the going time these days?

Thanks for the input... Would I be well advised to submit a brand new entry to Google? I might have underestimated my monthly hit total. But at the same time, I don't want to raise the wrath of the powers-that-be at Google by trying to register from scratch for a second time.

I completely disagree. I have a new site. I am not getting many visitors/impressions per day, I DO have good content though. I got accepted into Adsense within hours of applying...Oh...and I have a PR0 STILL...
