Theater Suspect Withdrew Application To Attend KU

DENVER (AP) – The man suspected of opening fire in a Colorado movie theater had applied to the University of Kansas graduate school but withdrew his application before the school decided whether to admit him.

The university released James Eagan Holmes’ application on Wednesday in response to open records requests filed by The Associated Press and other news outlets.

Holmes applied to neuroscience programs at a half-dozen graduate schools and ended up at the University of Colorado, Denver. He withdrew at the end of his first year, about six weeks before the shootings.

Many parts of Holmes’ application to Kansas appear to be similar to his applications released by other schools.

The July 20 shootings killed 12 and wounded 58. Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder. He hasn’t entered a plea.
