BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) -
According to media reports, accused Aurora theater shooter, James Holmes, was rejected as a candidate for the PhD neuroscience program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Documents released to The Denver Post from UAB show despite high marks for his laboratory work, knowledge and scores on admissions tests, Holmes' personality apparently troubled at least one professor during interviews in Birmingham.
He was informed that he would not be admitted to UAB's program on March 31, 2011, and went on to enroll at the University of Colorado Denver. He performed poorly and withdrew after the spring semester this year, just before bursting into an Aurora movie theater on July 20 during a showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." Twelve people died in the shooting and another 58 were injured. Holmes faces multiple counts of murder and attempted murder.
In the UAB application packet, professors gave him high marks for his knowledge, but one professor said, "He may be extremely smart, but difficult to engage. Hard to tell how interested he is - maybe he just wasn't interested in my research."
That interviewer rated Holmes only as a "good" candidate, but other interviewers rated Holmes as "outstanding."
Homes traveled to Birmingham for the interviews in February, 2011.
