Bad news is that from the response, I still don't know if I'll be before the first preapproval :D
The important part:
Thank you for your email.
We appreciate you notifying us of the clicks that you have made. Please note that in order to protect your interests as well as those of our advertisers, Google monitors clicks on Google ads to prevent any abuse of the AdSense program. Google's proprietary technology analyzes all ad clicks for any invalid click activity that is intended to artificially drive up an advertiser's clicks or a publisher's earnings.
Clicks deemed by our monitoring system to be invalid will appear in your reports. However, since advertisers are not charged for clicks deemed to be invalid, publishers do not receive any revenue for these clicks. Consequently, you may on occasion notice clicks with no associated revenue. Please rest assured that your account is being properly credited for all valid clicks.
However, please remember that clicking on your own ads for any reason is prohibited, as it has the potential to inflate advertiser costs.
The rest was just about how I could go about viewing ads through a special page, etc
