How many of yall will be late graduates?

Do yall think that graduating late affects future employment?

And by employment, I mean an office job, not some burger-flippin McDonalds ass retail job.

Taking 5 years to graduate, no big deal, worry more about your GPA and resume, more than 5 years, if you've consistently been in school that whole time, probably a bad look.

That doesn't matter. I've been hiring employees for my department and I don't even look at that to be honest.

Worry more about your resume than you GPA, most places won't look at your GPA (unless going for masters etc)

Plus you will have a higher chance of getting your resume looked at because you won't be competing against all of the graduates at the end of the year

I look at portfolio and experience. You got to remember that the work force is year round and employers are always looking for employees. Doesn't really matter what time of year you graduated.

As of right now I'll be a year behind my class I graduated with in high school. I'm not really worried about it too much, and if it boiled down to it, I could always take a full course load the next two summers and graduate on time.

Doesn't matter really. I know people who graduated years ago & never found anything in their field.

Best thing to worry about these days is doing well in a field with a good job outlook.

I'm on the same boat except I'm almost done with my course work, so I can graduate in 4 years.
I want to delay my graduation and study a-broad cool though. Do it? but by time I come back everyone in my class probably got jobs already and i might not find shit

I appreciate everyone's input. 

Freshman year was the only time I took a full course load the entire year. From then on I took a break from school, moved around taking two classes here and two classes there; so while I should be a Junior going on Senior, I'm still a Sophomore based on the credits I have so far. 

I just wasn't sure if not being consistent would look bad in the end, but yall cleared that up.

Taking winter session for the first time this year (starts jan 2) to remain on target to graduate next fall.  I could have done summer but figured winters where I live are pretty shitty and it sounds nicer to have summer open for strictly a job or maybe internship. Its definitely very common though to take longer than 4 years. I probably fooled around a bit on a major and probably could have graduated on time if I had done heavier course loads and on my shit but who wants 0 social life in college?

Yeah me too, it's a little bit annoying but i imagine it won't matter one bit in the long run.

a degree doesn't have a deadline on it. The only thing that matters is finishing school. you can finish whenever you want.
