"His overall GPA for the six classes that he completed was 3.26," said Steinmetz, adding that Lanza also took courses in philosophy and macroeconomics.
Adam Lanza, the gunman in the Connecticut school shooting, went to college at 16, according to new details about the shooter emerging Monday.
Lanza enrolled in courses at Western Connecticut State University, earning a B average over the year as he studied philosophy, macroeconomics and history.
I am no scholar but to enroll into college at 16 is quite a big deal. He must of been highly intelligent.

That's you. You're a respected member of ATS.
Where's his online profile at? He hosted LAN parties, right? A 20 year old geek should have lot's of online personas. He should have an Xbox Live account, or something. WOW, Starcraft 2? Those are the games geeks play.
That info should be a glaring fact in the face of the Official Story, of which, is yet to be solidified.
20 year old geek? Yes, he played online games. There should be a lead there.
But in the age of cloud computing and multiple Internet-connected devices, authorities have no shortage of ways to follow his online footprints for clues, from acquiring his emails and search history to obtaining his online correspondence while he reportedly played "Call of Duty" on Xbox, experts said.
"Your Internet history is very telling," said Monique Ferraro, an attorney and digital forensics expert. "Even without a hard drive, if he was on the Internet, and most people are, investigators will be able to tell quite a bit about what he was doing, where he was going and what he was thinking."
Lanza, 20, was reportedly adept at computers, belonging to a technology club at his high school, according to the Associated Press. Yet he also left investigators with a relatively light digital trail to follow. In addition to destroying his hard drive, he reportedly did not have a Facebook or Twitter account.
"They're going to be looking at all of his stuff, his thumb drives, any removal media where he may have stored anything," Ferraro said. "They'll look at this Internet activity and see a lot of circumstantial evidence about what he was doing in last several months."
