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.
