Do you notice something odd about this review from Ratemyprofessors.com? Take a close look at why this professor isn’t recommended.

You’re required to show up. You’re required to be on time. Your work is scrutinized closely. You have to work with other people. You have to speak in public. You’ll be asked to do things outside your comfort zone.

Now look at the rating of Overall Quality — a 2/5. Given the exact same reasons, couldn’t the professor be rated much higher?

And the rating for Level of Difficulty — a 4/5 — is considered a bad thing. Couldn’t it just as easily be a good thing?

Couldn’t we just have higher standards for ourselves?
