Graduating in 5 years

  1. Jan 2, 2006 #1
    I'm in my second year of college and am majoring in math-philosophy and physics. I could probably finish in 4 years if I take ~18 credits (~6 courses) a semester but I could do it in 5 years with a normal load. I really want to go to a top notch graduate school after I earn my BS but was wondering if it would look bad if I did my undergrad in 5 years.

    5 years is getting to be the norm in the US nowadays from the students I have seen lately.....

    Thanks to cut backs in financial aid. Growth in the fields of study, yet no reducing of old classes.
