Two Majors, 5 years? Effect on employment and grad school?

jenny1pennyjenny1penny Registered User Posts: 296 Junior Member
I am currently majoring in Biochemistry and would like to add a second major in Life Science Communications. From the looks of it right now, I could try to finish both majors in 4years but that might be a little difficult. But I could definitely finish both majors in 4 years and a half. Would taking another semester affect how grad schools and employers view me as a competitive applicant?

I will be able to afford another semester so money matters are not important.

    It shouldn't matter at all. I've got plenty of friends who took victory laps, whether it was to finish a Master's, a second major or a first major, and all of them are doing just fine now :)
