I would highly recommend that students look at this site and read the ratings and comments for the professors before signing up for their classes.
Prior to using ratemyprofessor, I would have to say I’ve had the worst of luck finding an adequate professor.
For instance, this past fall semester, I took a professor that was not pleasant, for use of better words. The classroom
discussions were tolerable however, I found his grading and his attitude to be harsh.
After finals were over a friend told me about ratemyprofessors.com. I looked up the professor and after seeing the ratings and comments left by other students, it’s no wonder. No one had a good experience with this professor. I took that time to look up other past professors to see their ratings and soon realized that although anonymous, the site was quite accurate.
All of the professors whose classes I struggled with all received low ratings. I wish I’d known sooner about the site.
I like it. I appreciate the warning of what my professors might be like before making the decision to sit in their classrooms for a full semester.
