Making news with RateMyProfessors made me smile. Sure, tops schools made the list, but so did several schools no one has heard of. Why? Because RateMyProfessors rankings are affected by schools whose students use their service. It just so happens that many many BYU students use the site, while students at many other schools have never even heard of it. Also, because students aren't required to use the service typically the only students who post reviews are those who really loved or really hated a professor, thereby significantly biasing the results.
