Regarding "Complete your Board of Review"...

<My first question concerns the Eagle rank. Does listing "7. Complete
your board of review" as a "requirement" now mean that EBORs must be
completed before the 18th birthday? By numbering the item does it now
change from a "process requirement" to a "rank requirement"? It has
been my understanding that all "rank requirements" had to be completed
before the 18th birthday but the EBOR "process requirement" could be
held later (with a few caveats attached).>
We wondered about that one, so my DE called national. Here is a copy of
part of his response to me:
I called the National Office, BSA this morning ( Wed )
Here is their response.
1. Can an Eagle Board be held after a boys 18th Birthday?
A. YES....up to 3 months with no questions....6 months with an explanation
This is about what we have been doing.
