MtvU's, the largest online destination for college professor ratings, today released its annual lists ranking the nation's top professors and universities, based entirely on students' input.

Whereas the 2011–2012 top universities list was dominated by smaller universities and private schools, this year's list is populated by many large institutions and state schools. The rankings for best schools were determined by analyzing both professor ratings and campus ratings. Different from typical college rankings, this list is generated entirely from the input of the students themselves – providing an authentic overview of daily life at each respective school.

We included each school's spot on Forbes' top colleges list and US News' national university rankings for comparison. Doesn't seem like students are on the same page as the guys who write the books.
