    How many years as Physics major-field? What courses taken were not typical for Physics major? Employed part of full time while a student? A light year or two with some social life? Six years is not so bad.

    Not at all, from what I've experienced.

    As long as you keep up a high GPA and dont have a lot of debt, I dont see why its a big deal.

    I graduated engineering in 4.5. You're there to learn, its not who can get out the fastest. College is go your own pace in that regard.

    It took me 5.5 years to graduate with a physics degree. But I took the major-related courses in my last 2 years (switched majors in my 2nd and 3rd years)
