It was my experience that you have to have something published for the Adsense guru to evaluate for advertising content.
If you have a personal blog, you can direct Adsense to that URL or if you have hubs, direct it to those.
I am not aware of anyone obtaining an Adsense account without having something published first. Afterall, Adsense is advertisments related to written content. If there is no content to relate to... how can Adsense determine if "they" will make a profit from "you"?
