What is the sponsorship policy at MBBs for experienced hires (e.g., consultants who come over after 2 years at another firm). How long would you have to work at the MBB to be able to use grad school sponsorship?

At McK, I believe you'd have to come in as a BA (which would be the norm anyway for that experience), and you'd qualify for sponsorship just like any other BA. It's based on the review timing and not your actual firm tenure so it can vary a bit, but it's around 1.5 years - most people start in the fall and then would be eligible after their second spring review as long as they're in good standing.
