Princeton Review, LGBT friendliest colleges - Your mileage may vary

Princeton Review has compiled its annual list of the 20 LGBT friendliest colleges and universities. I would not take this terribly seriously. The methodology is probably less than peer-review worthy science.

There are better measurements such as the services provided. Harvard, for example, has an off Office of BGLTQ Student Life. On the other side of the continent, Stanford provides a Queer Events and Services Team. Having an outreach to transgender students is important. It demonstrates the kind of commitment that the school makes to attract and then help LGBT students. There is no substitute for personally speaking with some queer students. Religious schools are a mixed bag. Notre Dame is very welcoming while Yeshiva might be perilous.
