Should I take an extra semester?

I am a non-traditional student and will be finishing my undergrad in environmental science fall 2019. I have changed my plan a few times, been to two universities and one community college, and have bounced between part time/full time status. If I took an extra semester I feel like it would further show I am reliable, can stick with something, I could also get a minor in chemistry. I am fearful a school with see my transcripts and not bother with an interview thus, not giving me a chance to explain the craziness.
