What all do you generally expense when you stay over the weekend?

Long shot but worth a try I guess - I have interviewed with McKinsey a few months back and have offers from two T2s. Had a consultant level referral at BCG in March for ATL office but didn't get an interview. Is anyone from BCG, preferably PL and above, willing to connect and chat to see if there is a fit for a referral? The reason I mentioned my past interviews is to establish some credibility because I come from a non traditional background.
