I wrote a resume that stressed my understanding of the business value of the work I was doing, passed the case interviews and am jumping from BAH to BCG doesn't feel like a wildly different change. You should be prepared to talk about how you're looking to bring your learnings in mission driven strategy to revenue driven strategy though.

BCG is a single resource pool and cost structure and there is no federal line of business like at Deloitte and Accenture, which is part of the value we bring. Hence, everyone gets paid exactly the same. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise

I’m sure BCG only staffs people who are US Citizens or GC holders on federal work.

I’ve heard yes.

MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4. That said seeing some of my Big 4 friends make it to SMs in 7 years so MBB needs to amp up the meritocracy based promotions. Curious what would be the comp for a 1st year consulting partner in Big 4?
