    "good schools" in what sense? Go through the list, check out the modules/courses you take in each program and see what interests you. If you're looking for the academically best courses out of your list, the entrance requirements are usually a good indicator of the difficulty of the course imo.

    Also, MSc OR is related/similar to some other courses you might want to consider (e.g. applied math, statistics...) which are run by a wider range of universities.

    "good schools" in terms of reputation, curriculum and placement. I have checked most of the above mentioned schools and the curriculum does not differ much and the kind of requirements for entry are almost similar. So, its difficult of filter them out on those basis. So, someone who is exposed to OR in UK can enlighten better on how is the course in different unis.
