As consultancies generally recruit younger folks - and b-schools try to recruit those who firms want - you are going to have some challenges.

Indeed, the top schools for consulting - LBS, Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, Fuqua, etc. - all tend to take students who have in the 4-6 years of work experience range. You'll need to come up with a convincing pitch for yourself in terms of why you need an MBA - rather than an EMBA - and why now.
