I moved from big 4 without an mba. Just apply

Nope just BA

I got in without an MBA but I did have consulting experience.

No you don’t need an MBA, but to come in at the same LEVEL (based on education, not years of work experience) you need another terminal degree (PhD, JD, MD). A non-terminal, non-MBA masters won’t get you in at the MBA-level. That’s not to say you couldn’t get hired at that level anyway with your work experience depending on what you’ve done.
