How common is it to get an offer at a lower level and a lower salary? Applied for a Senior Associate position and they offered me an Associate level with a lower salary than what I'm making now. 3.5 YOE. Is there anything I can do to counter?

Depends. Are you moving industries into consulting, or moving between differnt consulting firms (perhaps differnt tier?). Either ways, expect a small haircut from
One to the other in both situations mentioned. For the right opportunity, esp MBB for the trajectory and exit options, it’s worth the hit.

That being said, you should definitely counter!

Not uncommon, it’s a common lever in recruiting. Usually it’s an indication that your feedback was good but that you’re not ready for the initial role. But to SM1’s point, you can still push on the salary component even with the lower title.

Totally. Negotiate a higher salary, and ignore the title. See what they say.
