(AP) - The man suspected of killing 12 people in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater once applied to graduate school at the University of Kansas.

James Eagan Holmes later withdrew his application to the neuroscience program. KU released it Wednesday in response to open records requests.

In the February 2011 document, Holmes wrote of an "unquenchable curiosity" and a goal to "increase the efficiency of how human beings learn and remember."

Holmes withdrew at the end of his first year at the University of Colorado-Denver, about 6 weeks before the shootings.

He is charged with murder and attempted murder.
