Nope, so long as you’re from an MBA that they typically hire from you’d be considered, especially in this climate. You’d likely be hired at the post-MBA level (I.e. your year is experience wouldn’t count for much). The big question you’d face would be why didn’t you apply to consulting during your MBA. What’s changed?

In this job market, they’d be happy to poach consultants from other firms who can start on day 1.

Typically yes—right now it’s much easier given demand. You’d come in as a 1st year post-mba consultant so you’d be 1yr behind your peers.

Very curious, which industry? You can get in with case prep etc. but would caution you that the wlb is drastically different most times. Just make sure you know 100% what you're getting into.
