In terms of career progression after you are hired, your school becomes totally irrelevant. It's all about on-the-job performance.
I think FCH anywhere stands better chance for consideration for JLC than 2:1 from Oxbridge even.

Genuine question, what extracurriculars will give a leg up for corporate track? Case comps, are usually business school thing. I suppose moot competition wins look good anywhere, but it's not exactly on point.
