Double degree or not?

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm currently a junior in Mechanical Engineering, and I'm strongly considering doubling my major with Physics. I have about two more years in M.E., and three more years to complete a Physics degree.
It would be impossible for me to complete both of the degrees in three years because of the difficulty of the curricula, as well as restrictions on hours per semester. It's looking like 5 years to finish both degrees...but this is kind of crazy, I would be in college for 9 years!!!
I really enjoy taking these physics classes, and I would love to use the knowledge gained to help with the engineering discipline.
Would it be worth it to stick through these two degrees, or should I just get out sooner?


p.s. I'm interested in Neuroscience, materials science, research and design, aerospace, a lot of things really...

I don't really think it's worth it because of the extra time. At the end of all of it you're just going to have two bachelor's degrees.
