Mixed news for Maryland's LGBT high schoolers looking to attend one of the nation's most LGBT-friendly colleges: They'll have to head out of state. As part of its annual rankings book, Princeton Review rated the 20 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities, and no Maryland schools made the cut. On the flipside, no Maryland schools appeared on Princeton Review's "LGBT-Unfriendly" list (though Catholic University in neighboring D.C. did). So it's not as if the state's public and private institutions aren't accepting of LGBT students.

"But by that time they might have dug themselves into a hole they can't afford."
