I’m only 15, I started my proposal when I was 14.

That's interesting because that is the age group having the toughest time. Maybe  they need to  slow or maybe you are really smart, which you probably are. :)

You don’t need to be smart to fill out paperwork.

You need to be determined and put effort and you can accomplish it.

The only issue is that bsa does not require sign off in the plan so many guys I know wrote them after their project. What good is that. 

I agree that this happens a lot. The plan section of the workbook is actually optional (but strongly suggested). You can’t be flunked on your Eagle BOR for using a different planning method.

When sitting on EBORs, there is limited time to read the submitted materials so we typically focus on the proposal and the final report only.

In my view, the main purpose of the plan section is to force the Scout to think through the details of executing his proposal. I recognize  that the plan section is cumbersome and clumsy. I have no problem at all if a Scout chooses a different format for his plan.

There is a regular member of this forum who has identified himself as the head of health and safety for the BSA.  Whether he brings ideas mentioned in this forum to the people at National who are responsible for that area, I don't know.

I should mention that I see the hands of BSA legal department all over the Eagle workbook. I have no doubt that BSA lawyers have contributed much to make the workbook cumbersome, and for that reason improvements are unlikely.
