I'm definitely a "cynical bad student". Fit the description perfectly. I only respect teachers who also work part-time as a programmer, sysadmin, ... anything interesting.

Me too, although it was less about the individual lecturers than about questioning the value of the whole system. I got mediocre grades overall but excellent grades in a few subjects considered very hard, simply due to finding them interesting and thus being motivated to go to the lectures and putting effort into the assignments. If I could go back, I would not have chosen a five year track.
