I graduated in four years. I, too, came in with a ton of AP credits, so I was able to have three majors and a minor.

It took me six long years. I changed my major, took twice the required honors courses and I was on a music scholarship that ate up a third of my hours each semester. I'm amazed I even finished!

4 years. I only took one class during the fall semester of my senior year though (mainly so I could stay on the dance team, I didn't need that class). I worked full time during that semester. I could have graduated in 3.5 semesters, but all the classes I needed for my majors were offered second semester (I didn't take the the spring semester of my junior year b/c I studied abroad). My college was so small that classes are only taught once a year.

4 years and I'm glad it wasn't any more or any less - though I was thankful for the 6 months I did abroad.

Technically, I know it was more than four because I graduated from college ten years after I got my high school diploma, however I'm not sure of the total years as I went on and off. Some of those years were part time as well.

Four years, although I wanted to do it in 3 at the time.

4 years exactly! I took a summer internship and a winter course, so my last semester was a breeze!

Ah! this is my biggest grammatical pet peeve. No one "graduates college" in four years... the college graduates YOU in four years. The title of this article should read, "did you graduate FROM college in four years."

With AP courses all through HS, and a few other courses in middle school (I went to 2 classes per day from 7-8 grade) I managed to get out in 2 with a BA. Awesome stuff. I don't regret not staying the whole 4 years. I mean, I didn't have to, and I like where I am now.

Happsmjc--It took me 4 years as opposed to 3 because I double-majored in two totally different areas (Spanish and biochemistry). I had enough credits to actually graduate when I had finished 3 years, but I wanted the double major. Most of my earned credits were for Spanish...I came into school with 23 Spanish credits.

3.25 years. Never took a break during the summer and loaded up even then, also had a few AP credits. I should've slowed things down to concentrate on boosting my GPA but I just wanted to be done with it.
