Well, if you meant to type "21" in your last sentence then you are correct.
If you meant "22" as you typed, then you are incorrect.
When FL was added they did NOT change the total number of mb's required to
make Eagle, only the breakdown between required badges and electives which
now stands at 12 and 9, a change from the 11 and 10 before FL was required.
