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.

I know someone who went from Booz Allen after 4 years to McKinsey but started as a first year analyst.

Just had a fact gathering meeting with new client after having to drive 3+ hours to meet them. I barely introduced myself before I was asked 1) how old I was and 2) how long had I been doing this. I’m c/o 2015 and have been doing litigation ever since. When I explained that this was not my first rodeo, they tell me that they don’t know if they feel comfortable with me handling the case since the named partner also on the file didn’t show up. It’s ins defense case and they aren’t paying a dime...
