Seung Cho’s only social promotion?

On campus, Cho had raised some alarms. His professor for a 2005 seminar, renowned poet Nikki Giovanni, found his work disturbingly dark. “He was writing really creepy things,” Giovanni said. Worse, Cho was intimidating other students in the class by snapping pictures with his cell-phone camera. Finally Giovanni decided to ask Cho to complete the course work outside the seminar, in a tutorial with the department head. “I couldn’t allow him to destroy my class,” she said.

At the end of the semester, Giovanni gave him an A- not for talent or effort, but because she feared angering him.
