    One scout in my troop is hurrying to get his Eagle for the next BOR. Due to the circumstances, his project will occur within only a few days of when he must turn in his paperwork. Is the scoutmaster conference allowed to truly take place at any time as a Life Scout, i.e. now, the week before his project?

    Yes, you are correct. There is no requirement that the scout completes any part of the rank before you have a scoutmaster conference.

    Simple answer Yes, it can occur any time during the existing rank. For more information check the guide for advancement.

    Since the scout needs the SM’s signature on the application, it is usually convenient to have the SMC after the other work is completed. That way the scout gets a final check before the app goes to council HQ.

    But, if the SM is more free earlier, he can schedule accordingly, he may.
