Documents show impression Holmes made at UI

URBANA — Described as a candidate with "outstanding" personal and professional qualities, James Holmes was accepted into the University of Illinois Neuroscience Program in 2011 and was offered financial support through a combination of fellowships, teaching and research assistantships, and tuition and fee waivers, The News-Gazette has learned.

However, a few weeks after his visit to the Urbana campus in the spring of 2011 and one day after he was offered admission to the highly selective graduate program, Holmes declined to accept, without elaborating on the reasons or his plans for the future, according to university documents provided to The News-Gazette under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

The UI documents, which included email correspondence, travel arrangements, Holmes' application and more, depict Holmes as an aspiring cognitive neuroscientist.

Holmes was offered a financial stipend of $22,660 per year. Financial support would come through a combination of fellowship, NIH traineeship, teaching and research assistantships, plus tuition and fee waivers.

The UI's Neuroscience Program is an interdisciplinary research unit with an academic program leading to a doctoral degree. It has 70 students and more than 85 affiliated faculty from departments across campus studying the brain from a broad range of perspectives, according to its website.

Their research involves nutrition and memory, neuroengineering, aging, cell signaling and communication, neuroimmunology, and sensory and motor systems, among other areas.

-snip-

The program receives about 120 to 150 applicants annually and takes in between six and 15 students each year.

The university offered admission to Holmes on March 21, 2011. The next day Holmes declined the offer. He did not indicate his reasons or plans.

"My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Best wishes in your candidate search," he wrote to Beshers, program coordinator.

Sounds premeditated to me.

Additional info from the article: “Holmes’ GRE quantitative score was 800 (94th percentile), his verbal score was 710 (98th percentile), and he had an analytical writing score of 4 (45th percentile), according to his UI application. His GPA was 3.94 out of 4.00, according to the application.”

I am removed from academia enough that this is not real meaningful to me, but the analytical writing score seems strange.

I had a job when I was 18 years old as a night attendant in an insane asylum.

Yes, that is true, it was over 40 years ago.

I learned early on that it was a complete and utter waste of time and resources
to try to “understand” why crazy people are crazy.

This would suggest that if Holmes was "crazy"
it only occurred at CU Denver under Dr. Lynn Fenton.

Perhaps she was giving him Psychotropic drugs.

but when an otherwise demonstrably intelligent person does something “insane”, you look for an explanation.

I think she was using him as an experiment...

Mental illness s treated "experimentally" all the time. My cousin, female" was on six different kinds. Finally, her sisters who lived nearby (this is in California) called their mother in NYS. The mother hopped a plane. Saw the condition of her daughter. Toldthe doctor to go to hell and foud another doctor who apparently had better judgement in meds. My niece will never be quite right....she's just slow...bt at least she's stable. Mom and hubby have since moved to California to be by the daughters.

info on analytical writing
http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/

How do you score so low on that as compared to others.

How does U of I compare to Colorado?

Colorado is higher

Nope, not me.
Crazy is crazy.
I’ve been around too many of them.
There is no explanation worth pursuing.
All you need to know is the sum-beech was crazy.
That’s all.

Can someone explain to me why the booking report on Holmes would say he had brown hair. Wouldn’t you have to put red or orange.

OTOH, we know more about his academic record than we will ever know about Obama's...

Interesting read on Holmes Mugshot.

So why was he in an orange jumpsuit in the mugshot?

Paraphrasing a writer I cannot remember:

Normal people are normal in the same way; crazy people are crazy in a million different ones.

Leo Tolstoy’s book Anna Karenina, which begins:

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

Although I think your paraphrase is equally true.

I’m going to guess they stripped searched him and put his clothes into evidence bags before they took his prints and mugshot.

Which seems perfectly sensible after a mass shooting.

That could be a plausible answer.

So now to the facial hair. Does it look like days went by without shaving??

Perhaps his hair grows slow.

Like why did so many “intelligent” people vote for OBAMA!

I think she was using him as an experiment...

He was perfectly fine when offered the opportunity at UI.

How can a person with a verbal score in the 98%ile
fail an Oral Exam this Spring ?

He may have been selected as the "fall guy"
because of his father's pending testimony
in the LIBOR scandal, which may have
implicated Timothy Franz Geithner.

He appears to have been administered
psychotropic drugs to make him compliant.

Then left in his car for the Aurora PD to conveniently find.

Meanwhile the "real shooter" gets away.

Who is the woman in the red dress in court
claiming judicial mis-conduct on the part of the
"public defenders".

Thank you, I had completely forgotten the author/book, only remembered the thought. I’ve been sitting here trying to remember.. now I can sleep.

KoolAid. It's the only common denominator.

Like why did so many “intelligent” people vote for OBAMA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Why did so many intelligent Germans vote for The Nationalist Socialist Party of Adolf Hitler in 1933?

It was indeed the Kool Aid. The emotional appeal over logic of a race based nationalism and the promise to take back wealth for “ Der Volk,” combined with charismatic leadership and a dedicated, supporting, fawning press.

Obama’s version is the same as Uncle Adolf’s, its just dressed in different clothing, but Obama’s fascism wears a similar hatred for the Jews and Israel.

This article explains it all:

And the Gestapo and SS were waiting in the wings for when the KoolAid wore off.
