I go to school at a top 10 MBA program. The Big4 aren't hiring on campus this Fall.

Any idea when EY/Deloitte will start hiring again for full-time Cosulting roles? If so, how can I get hired as a fresh MBA through the experienced hire path?

Not going to campus is not necessarily not recruiting. Consulting firms, particularly this big, are always recruiting. 

The best option is to network into getting the interview - actually use this to your advantage. As the company is not going to the campus, you have an excuse to “cold email” / contact through LinkedIn people who are working there.

In any case you can (and will need to) apply online.

Honestly, it's anyone's guess. EY and especially Deloitte are in big trouble. They just grew too big and are having to cut a fair amount of existing staff, let alone worrying about hiring.

As a fresh MBA you 100% need to network!

In terms of networking tactics:

a) Reach out to people in your network

b) Reach out to people once removed from your network

c) Reach out to people with a similar backgorund to you (i.e. same alma mater, same hometown, same career switch, etc.)

d) Tailor a message to them specifically both showing interest in them and their journey and demonstrating that you have done your research and could be a valuable hire

e) Play "tag" across calls you get so that you can work your way towards the company/office/role you want

f) Leave a strong impression - i.e. don't ask "basic questions". Rather, demonstrate your ability/intelligence by asking smart questions, carrying a natural conversation, showing genuine interest, etc.
