When I get to college I will be majoring in philosphy and minoring in theology, so if I do that will it take less than ten years? Also how will I know what philosphy and theology clasees to take when at college?
You really should talk to your diocesan Vocations Director about this so you don't have to guess. A lot can depend on exactly what philosophy and theology classes you take and where you are going to school. I know some guys who took a lot of philosophy and religion courses at secular schools, and not much of that credit transferred over because it is obviously coming from a much different vantage point.
Sometimes, even if it is from a Catholic university, more courses will be needed for catching up simply because there are gaps in the topics a student studied. Vocations programs often have pretty specific curriculum requirements. Even if you have loads of good coursework under your belt, if you're missing some specific courses, you'll still need to make them up.
Again, your best bet for making good decisions in this regard is to talk to your diocesan Vocations Director. Even if you're still unsure of where you'd want to be a priest or even if you want to be a priest, it would be very beneficial to at least call him up and get some more information. It's far better to do that now when it can help you plot your future course of action than later when you discover you could have done things differently.
