So I applied for a TS SCI position at a fed agency in 2017 while in college. I graduated in 2018 and submitted my SF86 22 months ago (poly, med, references are done). Radio silence since. I am no longer putting my life on hold, but I would prefer the IC job.
I have decided to do Marine OCS and will be submitting my package this week. The thought just occurred to me of the possibility of getting a clearance denial for the IC role, lets say in 6 months, while I am in the military.
What would the consequences of this be regarding my militaty status? The likelihood of a clearance denial is low, as the only red flag is 5x marijuana use back in 2015. However, you never know when it comes to bureaucracy, especially within the IC.
What’s the worst case scenario here? Thanks.
