Would 2 YOE, 1 in biz dev & 1 at the business analyst level require me to lateral to MBB/T2 as an entry level analyst or would I qualify to start a level higher e.g. associate/consultant?

Do you have an MBA? If not, you would be an analyst at McK.

At OW you would start as a Consultant (entry level) and I assure you that would be the right decision to maximize your chances of success. Experienced hires who are trying to learn consulting while being held to the standards of a higher rank tend to struggle.

To add onto that, sometimes I have seen people with 2YOE join as SC but over a 3 yr period they actually performed worse than others who joined as entry level Consultant
