The question is: who did you receive offers from? Out of the list you've stated (Edinburgh, Essex, and Royal Holloway), I'd say: Edinburgh >> Essex/Royal Holloway.

Do you know why CASS rejected you? Did they give a reason? Have you requested feedback?

I would say go with Edinburgh since they're an excellent university and will open a whole host of doors for you.

From your universities I would assume Bristol to be the best, Bath are also pretty decent.

If I had to choose a top three out of your list, I'd say: Bristol; Bath; Edinburgh.

If it were me, I'd only consider those three universities, and in that order.

You may want to ask what is wrong with your current honours degree, as an honours degree - in the UK at least - is traditionally only three years.

The people I know who are studying Msc A+F at Warwick do not have Economics degrees. So yes you should.
Conversely the students doing Msc Economics do have Economics undergraduate degrees. So maybe that is the source of the confusion.

What about Strathclyde?

I noticed you applied to the same program I did there, and I am between Strathclyde, Bristol and Bath. Strathclyde seems to be very much respected and well ranked, but I think the others have a better reputation.
