I am interviewing with top consultacies (MBB & tier 2) in one office but I can't join now even if I get the offer. So I plan to get the offer and then decline (I want to see if I can get the offer). Should I stop the interview process?
I might want to apply for another office at the same firm a year later. Would getting an offer now and then decline a better sign for future recruitment for another office in another country?

I am in a dilemma in deciding between boutique opportunity and waiting for MBB interviews.
I have received a corporate consulting offer with ok pay, amazing work life balance and high quality colleagues (Almost all MBB) but the title is not high from Country A
I am interviewing for final round at MBB in Country B (high compensation and low tax)-they have a hard time scheduling interviews because they are very busy (even after I told them I have offers)
I am interviewing for the first round at MBB in Country C (high tax, high cost of living, core global office)
I am interviewing for a fast growing boutique within a large org in Country C (final round)
The boutique in Country C is talking about visa processing right now and ask for my info but I haven't even finished the final around with them (which is coming soon)
Living environment: C>A>B
Post Tax Salary: B>A>C
Cost of Living: C>B>A
Company brand and probably? exit oppoutnities: C(MBB)>B>A>C(boutique-niche but hot function)
I personally wont mind doing MBB at B to save some money for ~1.5 years and then move to C to live as I prefer living at C. 
Of course I can move to C and apply for MBB in Country C later but the Country C office is one of the most competitive in the world and I am not sure I can get an interview/get in and it costs at least a year.
How can I push back the boutique and make the process for MBB in Country B faster?

Do you know what is the deadline to accept boutique offer?

That is the thing, you are assuming that you have a high prob of getting mbb, if you do, decline the other.

Just accept the offer at the MBB when you get it

Obviously I didn’t tell them during the interview process, as I didn’t know, hadn’t even conceived when I started talks. Struggling with when to tell them - what’s the fine line between too early/risky and disrespectfully late?
