There was an article about Professor Rating sites on CNN which piqued my curiousity, so I looked up a few old professors that I had at Virginia Tech. The first I found was a CS professor I had for CS1704: Intro to Data Structures in 1997. His comments section is pretty much dead on -- it was his arrogance and personality (that continued to show up in other people in the field) that made me leery about having a career in CS in the first place. I remember thinking, do I really want to work with a guy like this for the rest of my life? Luckily, post-undergrad opportunities showed me how skewed the population is on campus versus in a company.

The second professor was the one I had for a year of written theory and five years of trumpet lessons. It too is dead on, although I'm not sure I want to know why that rater has been in college for 9 years.

Top 15 Funniest Ratings on RateMyProfessors.com:

  • 15. Emotional scarring may fade away, but that big fat F on your transcript won't.
  • 14. The movies he shows are so bad even he has to leave the room.
  • 13. Miserable professor - I wish I could sum him up without foul language.
  • 12. Instant amnesia walking into this class. I swear he breathes sleeping gas.
  • 11. BORING! But I learned there are 137 tiles on the ceiling.
  • 10. Not only is the book a better teacher, it also has a better personality.
  • 9. Teaches well, invites questions and then insults you for 20 minutes.
  • 8. I would like to dequeue her stack.
  • 7. Not a very nice woman. I'd even go so far as to say she's frightening.
  • 6. Very good course, because I only went to one class.
  • 5. He will destroy you like an academic ninja.
  • 4. Bring a pillow.
  • 3. Your pillow will need a pillow.
  • 2. If I was tested on her family, I would have gotten an A.
  • 1. She hates you already.

My favourite is #5, but I'd be denying my aberrant sense of humour if I didn't mention that I think #8 is hilarious.
