I mentioned Stony Brook only because I am a NY local so I know more about the state schools there. Are there any other similar schools to UCR that can offer funding for masters students that you know of, and that I can realistically stand a chance of being accepted?
Also, what are some of the so-called lower tier phd programs you mentioned? Money is somewhat an issue for me and I'm not too picky on name brand since more than anything else I am doing this for my interest in the subject!
Thanks again for the help!
What do you want to do with your Ph.D.? Depending on your answer, prestige of the university you're applying to could matter a lot.

From the website, it doesn't look like they require the Math GRE, but do you think I ought to send results to them anyway (I'll be taking it in April)? You don't think that my lack of coursework on my transcript is going to be a problem at a lot of these places?
I'm definitely much more of a visual person so I think anything in analysis or topology would suit me. I think a field like differential geometry or complex analysis would be a good fit for me, though I'd still like to cast a wide net.
Anyhow thanks for all the help. Keep the suggestion coming! You guys are definitely helping me to firm up a picture of the types of places I can expect to be a competitive applicant!
