I just got her today, and she can't be very old.
She weighs 77 grams, and when she is sort of standing/sitting on all four feet in the normal rat position (not outstretched) she is 10 cm long not including the tail.

Well I finally called the pet store where I got her and they said she was born on July 5. So she is a young one.
Roughly how long does it take a rat to reach adult size?

About 1 year, though it can depend on the rat

Baby rats grow at insane rates until about 4 months, where it settles into a slower growth. By 8 months they are pretty well adult sized.
