What kind of effect does being an Eagle Scout have on college applications?
Becoming an Eagle Scout does (usually) look great on an application, because it requires commitment, hard work, persistence, initiative in coming up with projects, and indicates a willingness to help others. Becoming an Eagle Scout is very difficult, and if you accomplish that while doing very well academically, then it’s a sign that you can handle a lot of work at once. I met three Eagle Scouts while at MIT. Outside of college, I knew one person who had managed to become an Eagle Scout, and that was my dad, who went to Dartmouth. I don’t remember meeting anyone at MIT who was a Boy Scout but hadn’t become an Eagle Scout (except for maybe a couple people who did like a year of Cubs when they were eight or whatever, which doesn’t really count.)My friends who were Eagle Scouts told me all about what it takes to achieve that, and it is not for the faint of heart. It therefore would undoubtedly look impressive on a college application to be an Eagle Scout. But my guess is that if you try to become an Eagle Scout solely for the purpose of making your college application look better, then you are unlikely to succeed. It seems you need to show real leadership and dedication to being the best Scout you can be for the sake of others, and if that alone doesn't motivate you, then it will likely be very hard to push yourself to do it over the length of time it takes. Also, all the schools you mentioned like to interview students and get a personal take on their activities. If your only motivation for becoming an Eagle Scout is to get into college, then that is likely to be apparent in an interview. And that certainly won’t help your application - top-tier universities like the ones you mentioned want students to have drive and passion for the things that they do and not just do them as a stepping stone to get into college.

When is the last possible date to submit an Eagle Scout rank application?
All Eagle Scout requirements must be completed before your 18th birthday, barring an exception for special needs. This includes “merit badges, service project, active participation, Scout spirit, position of responsibility, and unit leader conference.” Guide to Advancement 2015 section 126.96.36.199 [As of 11/6/16 the 2015 version is the most current.]However the signatures need not be dated before the Scout’s 18th birthday. (ibid, 188.8.131.52 #2, also 184.108.40.206) Section 220.127.116.11 mentions that a copy should be made of the application, service project workbook, etc. and once the copies are in safekeeping, the originals should be delivered promptly to the council service center. It says timeliness is especially critical if the candidate is approaching or has already turned 18.So clearly, although the work must be completed before the 18th birthday, the application needn’t be turned in by then. The Guide to Advancement recommends that the work be hand delivered if possible, but suggests registered or certified mail if that is not possible.“There is no requirement that the application must be completed or submitted before the 18th birthday. Councils do not have the authority to reject applications submitted on or after that date.” (Guide to Advancement section 18.104.22.168)The Board of Review will be scheduled after all records have been submitted to National and verified, then returned to the local council. No special permission is required for a Board of Review within 3 months after the 18th birthday (hence a good reason to submit your packet in a timely fashion).Between 3 and 6 months after the 18th birthday a letter of explanation for the delay is required, as is special permission from the local council. At 6 months past the 18th birthday or beyond, it becomes a real pain. Letters must be sent to National and permission granted to have a late Board of Review. Don’t be in this situation.Best bet, as everyone will tell you, is to get it all done as early as possible.
How does being an Eagle Scout help out while being in the military?
Good number of the answers cover the “factual” point that you will come into the military at the higher E3 grade (this also true for Gold Star Girl Scouts), and you could probably see a good number of Academy and ROTC folks that have these high recognition of youth achievement in their profiles too.Now the “subjective”. Those that achieve Eagle Scout and Gold Star have completed in their path Leadership, project management, resilience, citizenship engagement, life saving skills, emergency management, service, overall human engagement to and end purpose, a combined purpose. Absorption of many additional subjects and well, camping and the logistics of a camp is a skill.The perseverance to get to that milestone and what it tend to imbue in the character of the candidate has the ability to place them in not only a higher paygrade recognition, but also the expectation of the quality of character of that position, with the inherent expectation to go achieve higher.Eagle and Gold go a long way and imprsssive on any college application and resume.I was trying not to sound to pro-anything, just know that as someone who interviews candidates coming into the military and picking their trade Eagles and Stars standout before even seeing that certificate.
