Sounds like you're considering a "competition" factor between Yahoo and Google?
IMO, I don't think Yahoo will care if your site runs Google Adsense, Abrite, Quigo, or whatever. If you pay the $299 non-refundable fee, the ads shouldn't be an issue.
However, if you're submitting your site using the free submit, be prepared to wait.

Actually I wasn't considering the competition factor but given that the $299 fee does not guarantee submission, I thought it might be worth making the site as well-prepared for the review as possible.

I think the implementation of your AdSense, like if there is a wall of ads at the top of the page and you have to scroll down to get to the content, might be an issue. That doesn't have to do with AdSense either. It could be a wall of ads from any network including YPN and even your own. It's just not user friendly so why would any directory want that?
The other issue could be the quality of your content. None of that has to do with AdSense. I have several free Yahoo directory listings for pages that have three AdSense blocks and affiliate links from CJ, Shareasale and Amazon all on the same page. But the high quality content is the main draw and none of the ads distract from the content.

The content of the site is quality, at least I think so, but I'm biased. It has some features no other site has and I've worked hard to bring value to my readers. Just to be on the safe side, I've removed all ads for the time being. I hope it doesn't take more than 7 days to be reviewed.

More than seven days? Don't hold your breath. If they reviewed sites that quickly who would pay the $299?

ermmm, I did and did get reviewed (and accepted) in 7 days (5 days, actually). My post was about the express submit option, not the free submit. Who uses the free option anymore?

Be good if you start a new thread in six months to say whether or not you consider it $299 well spent.
