If you already apply for adsense through hubpages and waiting for their feedback for about a week, maybe you already had the approval, because, if you are rejected they will give you rejection in less than 24 hours due to insufficient content, unacceptable site content and 2 to 3 days regarding other google policy.
If you have a few quality hubs, it should only take a day or two. If you have to resubmit, for lack of content or another reason, Google can leave you hanging for quite some time. It's easier at that point to use a whole different GMail account.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
