I got approved immediately. Have you entered payment instructions? Sometimes people don't enter how Google would be paid for clicks, Google doesn't allow you to start your campaign.
Second, you can check Tools and then Disapproved Ads. Make sure that you don't have any disapproved ads.
Thirdly, check your budget and default CPC. Your budget may not be good enough to cover your cost per click for a day.
Last, check your quality score. If it is too low, Google may not give any impression of any of the keywords.
All the best for your first campaign...
