Hm. It was on the .pdf of the reserve letter they emailed you, or did they send it through snail mail? Either way, it seems like a good sign? If you want CLS, I bet you'll have a great shot at ~beating the odds if you continue to maintain interest throughout the summer.

probably just means their hand got tired

it's funny to see how the legibility of those handwritten notes gets progressively worse as the cycle trudges on.

my last note from one school looked like it read, "hoopty zéf u soon? -@$"

I was placed on Reserve so long ago that I don't remember if I filled out the "Keep me on reserve" form. I'm sure I did...probably...
