Vertical or subject matter expertise in specific areas an office is looking for will take you a long way. Short answer is yes, but you'll need to really shine in some other way.

At least at Bain, we do some industry hires in the spring to round out the class. You have to be willing to start as a first year analyst, but there are a few opportunities if you get lucky. I would talk to analysts you know to MBB in your city to see if those programs are going on.
