    Anyone ever use "rateyourprofessor.net" here? It's a growing database of college professors evaluated by the students. Basically there to help you get the easiest teachers, or at least one's you will be able to relate to better...
    I used to use it, I thought it was great...:)

    I use it only for the shitty teachers I have. Not only do I rip them apart in the quarterly eveluation, I like to tell the other students how it really is to be in their class.

    What?! Thats impossible im never, EVER wrong.
    LoL, just kidding.
    I wonder why they have people sighn up? Maybe it's only if you're gonna participate in the gradeing of one of you're proffessors. Nothing better than giveing the teacher you're own personal grade on how good of a job you think he/she did.
     
  7. Never heard of that site, but I just used www.pickaprof.com this past semester. It only costs $5 for a semester, so it's really not that much. It allows you to see the professor's complete grade history, plus student reviews. Because of it I'm in two classes that about 60-70% of the students get either an A or B. It also helped me avoid a class that I almost took with a horrible professor. A worthy investment in my opinion.

    I used ratemyprofessor before this semester because the intro to lit class I needed to take had two teachers. One got horrid reviews and my friend took it anyway, hes miserable. I took the class with the star professor even though it wasn't convinient for my schedule and I am extremly glad I have her. I have a great grade and we have fun in class. After the semester I will go back and rate her very well.

    Great site. However, i wish there was an option of contacting past students to ask specific questions.

Moreover it also promotes free essays, research papers, term papers and etc as well. You have got many other great features on the site too. Dont listen to me, if you dont want too.. check it out for your own self...

    I tend to never agree with how profs are rated; when people rate them well I dislike them, and when I like them people give them poor reviews.

    So I tend to take it with a grain of salt.

    A lot of the reviews in my major are from pissed off freshman who can not cut it, so it really does skew things as sitka says.
