No offense, but do you think you’ll get a job at the end of all this studying???

BTW — PhDs can easily take 5-7 years.

Most Phd’s are 72 credit hours after a master’s. Most master’s degrees are about 30 credit hours.

If you go full time you should be able to do 15 credit hours a semester.

Beyond just the classes required for a PhD; you will need to do a thesis & defend it–that can add 1-6 years onto the PhD course depending on your thesis, research, changes, defense etc. (no one mentioned that in the answers).
