Thoughts on when is best to exit from strategy consulting to PM?

For strategy consultants moving to PM, can anyone talk about the TC jump and level jump? My hypothesis would be that jumping after 2 YoE at post-UG level would have you going ~$100k TC to ~150k TC. Whereas jumping at post-MBA level would have you moving from ~190k TC to ~180k TC. Does this sound accurate? If so, it might make more sense for me to exit into PM pre-MBA.
