Not possible as a BA. BA hiring is extremely selective and open to very few campuses

Thanks a lot for your detailed response. This was very helpful. Yes, i understand that getting in as a JA after MBA is easier as compared to getting in as a BA just after undergrad but i wanted to gain some MBB experience for 2-3 years before moving to BSchool abroad. That being said, based on your response and after understanding the way mckinsey hires BAs, I dont think my online application at mckinsey will get much attention from the recruitment team. Let me try my luck, thanks a tonn :)
