Do what you would do if the interview didn't exist. Go 100 percent in with your current job. If you get an offer. Great. People are either understanding or deserve the burned bridge.

yep, this. at the end of the day, business is business and your current firm wouldn’t give you the same loyalty

It’s your dream firm. They will understand

Good luck with the BCG interview!

I don’t want to lose all of these opportunities if I don’t end up getting an offer? Don’t want to commit and then have to suddenly resign and burn bridges.

It's your dream firm. Take some time off and prepare for the interviews and give it your best shot. Don't waste the limited time and energy on something that is a backup option. Especially not for PRD. If it's about joining a new role or a new project at the firm, show interest and say you'd love to join after this date as you have personal commitments. This way you can have both until you join your dream company.

The grass isn’t always greener. Make sure you take an inventory of what makes this opp as better than what opportunities you have at your current firm. Talk to people that work there and see if those things are reality. Then check and make sure those opportunities don’t exist at your current firm. Sometimes hard conversations make you a stronger professional, and you end up with exactly what you’d have somewhere else.

Can you pass one offer to me?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
