Sometimes there are some really interesting classes I want to take but when I see some professors with low ratings, I want to pass up on those classes .-.

Some of the descriptions are accurate. Like some professors are really as bad as the students described. But others, I really liked! Like this one professor has a 2.7 rating but I gave her like 4.5/5 because she’s amazing at teaching and her lectures are really fun

When I was in Uni it really helped. As much as a topic is interesting, a bad professor can really ruin a class for you. It really helps if you have to take classes like physics, chem etc. where there are different professors you can choose from. Usually those classes are pretty tough and you want to choose the best professor to help teach you hard concepts. I usually don't put much weight in rate my professor if that professor only has a few scores. In that case if you are really interested in the topic but are unsure of the professor, I recommend to take that class. I've taken the risk of taking classes with new/unknown professors and they usually turn out great anyways.

like a lot of professors that got dragged that i had to take weren't that bad, but all their reviews were "ommgg so many essays i failed!"...like it's college dude not 3rd grade

Yeah I do use it a lot to help me. Like if all the reviews are bad then I'll probably pass up the class no matter how much I want to take it. Obviously you have to keep in mind how many reviews there are and the content of them.
