Haven't come across that one before... what's the program/school? They could just be checking to see whether you're still planning to attend. It's fairly common for institutions to want to decrease their acceptance averages (to raise their overall rankings), and one strategy would be to simply reject everybody who doesn't actually plan on attending. If you tell them you really want to come and don't have any serious offers yet, you might just hear back that you're in.
