I would go with MBS, simply as its a B School and will have better career services.Have you tried LSE Mathematical Finance/ Finance and Economics/Oxford MSCF?There are host of other programs you can try in USA/Europe.

LSE was unsuccessful , waiting on OX and Imperial. All these schools need "Mathematics or mathematics based" degree, MBS apart from being a B school, any other advantage/comment in terms of course contents etc. over Edinburgh/York? Do you happen to know any individual who has done similar course from these schools ?
