Students Rank 25 Universities With the Worst Professors


Here’s a disturbing list that students and parents with high-school age kids should consider before you commit to a college for next year.

The schools included feature some with top-notch reputations and top-dollar tuitions, including several from New Jersey.

The listing is based on reviews of professors by their students and you’ll see several universities on this list that are popular choices with South Jersey college students.

The Center for College Affordability and Productivity put the list together by looking through millions of teacher ratings at They then evaluated 650 colleges and universities for Forbes’ ranking of America’s Best Colleges.

Sixteen of the schools are public universities, while 11 are located in the Midwest. There aren’t any school from the South on the list.

The school with the lowest-rated professors went to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, while the U.S. Coast Guard Academy ranked third. The schools’ poor performance is a surprise, since two of the other service academies — West Point and the Air Force Academy – are near the top of the list of the schools with the best professors.

1. U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (NY)

2. Michigan Technological University

3. U.S. Coast Guard Academy (CT)

4. Milwaukee School of Engineering

5. New Jersey Institute of Technology

6. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY)
