Does your role at BCG qualify as a specialty occupation?

Would be best to confirm with the recruiter / HR or reach out to internationals currently in that specific role to get a better idea. Usually entry level roles consisting of pure management (without tech / analytics play of some sort) are scrutinised more.

You’ll be fine, the transfer process usually has worked out fine for most people (incl me). Also, if stuff happens, they do a lot to make it work, so I would focus on getting the job. If they want you, they’ll work pretty hard to get you on board.
