He raises good points. When counseling Scouts, I tell them to First
list the 12 merit badges needed for Eagle, then for the rest, to list
those others he earned IN THE ORDER HE EARNED THEM, oldest first, and if
he earned any beyond 21 to leave off the LAST ones earned.
I have an Excel spreadsheet developed by Scouters in the Grand Canyon
Council, in Beta test right now, which we'll be putting on the USSSP
site in a few days, that does all the checks for such problems BEFORE
the Board of review.
