Masters Degree To Change Careers using 334 GRE (Please help)

About to be a senior doing B.S Psychology from Texas state school, was pre-med, did all science + some math + some stats classes

3.92 GPA, 334 GRE (164V, 170Q) (=770GMAT)

Which finance masters would I be eligible for to make a successful transition into finance? I would take any good corporate roles or IB type roles at banks like BNP in the US. 

Options: Vanderbilt MS Finance, UVA MS Commerce with finance track, any other options that would work? I am so desperate to fix my life

You can do a top European Masters at the likes of Oxford/LSE/LBS/HEC and have a shot at a top BB in London with your profile.

Are you referring to MiM's or Masters in Finance programs? I think I would qualify for all the best MiM's, but for Master in Finance from LBS for example they say average work experience is 3-8 years so I don't know if I can qualify for any of the UK Masters in Finance programs

For LBS the Master in Financial Analysis (MFA) is pre-experience

All of the universities I've mentioned have a pre-experience Masters in Finance and are generally considered Tier 1. I believe that you could attend one of them with your profile if you were willing to work in London for a few years.

If I got accepted to one, how realistic would it be to get a decent job from that considering I don't have a finance background/finance internships? Should I maybe consider delaying my undergrad my one or two years to change my major, do internships, and then apply?
