I think you misread, he meant it was a bad sign *for him* because he didn't get it. I think, at least. I'm sure an unsolicited e-mail from Harvard to check out their school (although, why in the world would they need to do that? They're Harvard...) is never a bad sign.
Oh, hopefully that's what he meant. I was under the impression that he meant they send those e-mails in order to boost their selectivity by getting more people to apply and then denying them.
This is usually why they are sent, especially by lower ranked schools like harvurd.
