Oh, you have no idea. I have yet to begun to properly derail this thread....

1) You care more about being right than ending it.

2) I couldn't care less about student groups, LGBT communities, or Michigan. But I am irked by know-it-alls.

3) You found a place on the internet where someone from a student group claims it's the biggest, while someone else on the internet in this thread claims his/her group is actually the biggest. What exactly did you prove?

4) You still have no basis for knowledge, other than google. Why wouldn't you take the say-so of someone with actual, real life experience?

I'm a Michigan 2L. As far as I'm aware, and with apologies to active members of WLSA, that group does very little apart from random get-together events. Outlaws and APALSA seem to be easily the two most active groups on campus, with several others fairly close behind. WLSA is not one of them. It's not a 2L card or a 3L card - it's a "you have no idea what you're actually talking about" card.

That said, I respect your username.

Haha thanks.

I totally believe that they are more active. I just found it unlikely that a LGBT organization would be the largest, given the small population of LGBTs.

OP, I think more info is needed. Any particular geographic region? What range of schools are you looking at? If you're looking at 2nd tier schools, I can tell you that Case is pretty LGBT friendly. As far as T14 schools, I have heard that Michigan is gay-friendly. I am not too familiar with the law school, but William & Mary is a very gay friendly college.

Those with law schools (that I know of) are Berkeley, UCLA, OSU, WUSTL and Syracuse. I'm also confident that NYU is gay friendly, the Li-ann Theo incident notwithstanding.


Nice post. I'm surprised someone said Cornell was not very gay friendly. Ithaca college is right next to Cornell and is considered the #2 gay friendly college in the nation (from your link.) Also, Ithaca is overwhelmingly liberal. I find it very hard to believe such a divide would exist between the culture of the two schools.

Look up the list of student organizations at a school on the website and make sure they have a GLBT group of some kind, like OUTLAW. You may even be able to find contact info for an officer of the organization, to email and ask a real person what it's like there.
