Lateral from a shitty boutique, or do something else and then break in from top MBA?

What's a better way to go about this? I want to get to a top firm but I don't know if MBA route from top 5 is better after doing soemthing else like startup/big 4 rather than trying to lateral from a shitty boutique. Thoughts?
