    From my university, it takes 2-3 years to get a Masters degree, and another 2-5 years for the PhD.

    The average is 5-6 years after undergraduate

    Yep, 2 years minimum. Usually the majority of it is research work
    into your field of expertise.

    Live long and prosper.

    Skip your MS and go straight to PhD, you won't need it. And plan on 6 years, 2 for classes and 4 for research.

    Heh, I'm skipping B. Sc. and going straight for the M. Sc.
    Not going for PhD though.
