A great many of the applications which we ultimately do not accept are rejected simply because the application was not filled out completely.

In general, the more detail you give, the better your chances of acceptance.
In other cases, a non-acceptance means we don't think a developer will actually get any utility out of the program, which is oriented towards developers who wish to bring a product to market in a timely manner.
