Mitigating a lie on SF86

Hey all,

I have read a ton of stories about people who lied on an SF86, and were planning on going for a higher clearance and being honest on their new form. Something I never see is the outcome of these situations.

Has anyone lied on a SF86 and been able to successfully mitigate? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I’ve read a couple of posts now and it didn’t seem like it ended well for them.
