(Newser) – Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik won't be a college student after all. The University of Oslo has rejected his application to study in its political science program online from prison, reports the AP. The school says Breivik's "qualifications do not suffice," and it surely didn't help his case that he didn't finish the equivalent of US high school, reports Global Post. Still, it doesn't sound like Breivik will be giving up. "He studied mathematics this summer and will certainly study other material to reach the required level," says his lawyer. Breivik massacred 77 people in Norway two years ago; he's serving a 21-year sentence.
