  • Off-topic:n (a) 3pt is not a valid option for the report document class and is therefore simply ignored. (b) No need define \lVert and \rVert, especially not in the way you do.

Changing the order you open the center and the titlepage environments seems to work. I guess the center environment tries to make the titlepage centered, instead of centering only the contents of the titlepage.

I experienced a similar problem and the only thing that solved it for me was adding a total to the geometry as described in the documentation (http://vesta.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/ftp/pub/mirror/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/geometry/geometry.pdf, page 2)

\usepackage[total={6.5in,8.75in},
top=1.2in, left=1.0in, right=1.0in, includefoot]{geometry}
