Getting approval from DMOZ may take quite a while. If your topic is interesting and rare to find, you may stand a chance to be reviewed quicker than others. Having submitted to the correct category is also an important criteria otherwise it can drag on longer than necessary.
I've remembered reading alot about directory submission at Site Build It forums, there are people who waited for more than a year to be listed in the directory! It all depends on where you are on the queue really and who(human could be bias sometimes) reviews your site. What i've learnt is as long as you have minimum of 100 unique visitors to your site daily, you can start adding adsense ads. Otherwise you maybe waiting a long time and throwing away those adsense clicks.
hope it helps.
