MBA is kind of mandatory to get into any established consulting firm. Maybe some boutiques or newer firms might take you without MBA. That being said, there are always exceptions, I've seen some stellar profiles from IIT Bombay/Delhi and other top colleges who manage to bag an offer in management consulting (very few). Apart from that, almost everyone I've seen had an MBA degree.

All- I have some friends who work at Bain and the more I hear about the place, the more I want to eventually work there. The issue is that my credentials aren’t the best. I will have an MBA from a T15 college in about 2 years time, I have 6 years of experience in analytics consulting, mostly at small firms and startups. I guess I wanted to ask the golden question, do I really have a chance at getting into Bain? If so, how should I plan this out?
