James Holmes Denied Admission To University Of Iowa, Records Show Concern By Professors

A few University of Iowa professors issued a strong warning after meeting with James Holmes and denying him admission. In the days following Holmes’ interview, UI neurology Professor Dan Tranel emailed the admissions committee with the message “James Holmes: Do NOT offer admission under any circumstances.” Mark Blumberg, another UI professor, said in an email to the committee regarding Holmes, “I agree with Dan. Don’t admit.” In the admissions essay he sent to UI, he wrote: On average, two of the kids per cabin were clinically diagnosed with ADHD. One of the weeks, I mentored a kid with Schizophrenia. At 3:30 a.m. he woke up and vacuumed the ceiling of our cabin. These kids were heavily medicated but this did not solve their problems, only create new ones. The medication changed them from heavily energetic creative kids to lax beings who slept through the activities. I wanted to help them but couldn’t.”
