MBB Partner Referral after applying

Hey all, 

I applied to BCG literally a couple days ago, however I listed a different office than the one I desired as my first priority due to the innate ultra competitiveness of that office. However, a partner I've been talking to a bit had surprised me by offering a referral to my desired office. The issue is that the email I was referred with is the same email I applied to BCG with. Do you know what's the best way to deal with this issue? Should I try to reach out to HR/Recruitment of the desired office and explain the situation?
