It took me 2 1/2 years to get a dual major Bachelor's degree. I was motivated.

Took one last year and it was good. I think I will go 24/7. I just want to be working somewhat as well.

Thanks for all the insight guys. And I am really, really hoping that I don't have to do graduate work; I am hoping to go into the actuarial field and write my first exam ASAP.

4.5 years with a fair number of summer classes. Only every took four classes per semester so had to catch up somehow, and missed one summer so had to stay a bit extra. Wish I'd stayed longer sometimes.

I was 27 when I finally got my bachelor's, so nine years after high school. I started at a community college and only rarely went more than full time. I also took a couple of semesters off. All of this led to me taking a long time to get through community college. I finished the requirements when I was 25 and transferred to the nearest university. I managed to finish the last half of my degree in three semesters and a summer, so it was pretty intense once I got to a university.

5 years, mostly due to a complete lack of interest for a couple of semesters (wandering mind and all) that resulted in academic probationary actions, but also due to having to work full-time and the limited availability of certain classes required for graduation. But that's the problem with going to a UC (CSUs, as I understand it, have it much worse).

It's going to end up taking me 5 or 6 years to get my bachelor's.

Will be 25 when I get my bachelor's in English. So don't feel bad. I took a semester off to work at a newspaper and have had another two semesters tacked on to my college career due to poor planning.

Five years has been the standard for a BA in this country for a while. Six is also becoming more common. Four years is now the exception.

And depending on what you're going into, there's no sense of urgency to get done with school right now with the current job market.
