What does "RMP" mean on TikTok?

Though "RMP" has more than one meaning on TikTok, the most prevalent form is Rate My Professors. In this case, the acronym refers to a website of the same name, in which college students can give ratings and publish reviews about professors and campuses in the USA, UK, and Canada.

Since most TikTok users are between the ages of 18-29, the number of students on the app is incredibly high. As a result, the hashtags #rmp and #ratemyprofessor are super popular.

#RMP first arrived in the TikTok scene on Feb. 27, 2021, in a comedic sketch by user @abeegail99. In the video, Abigail uses a voiceover of a scene from Avengers: Endgame and details her professor causing her several mental breakdowns during the semester. After the professor brushes her off, the video cuts to Abigail at her computer, typing up a suspected awful review on Rate My Professor.

Since then, the video has accumulated more than 344,000 views and 66,600 likes.

In the following clip, a TikTok user films one of their professors at Duke University as he reads a mean review on his Rate My Professors profile. With a quality rating of 2 out of 5 and a difficulty level of 4 out of 5, it seems this guy is not the kind of professor you want.

"He gives out busy work for homework assignments and then grades them harshly for no reason," the review stated. The professor then attempts to state his case by saying he has a valid reason for his grading principles, but the video ends abruptly.
