Are there professors at your school who went to grad school in the US? If so they would have a much better idea of where you should apply than us, so I would definitely recommend talking to them.

First of all, you did not tell us what GPA you have, GRE subject score you got (though you mentioned that you are waiting for it), nor did you clearly mention how strong your letters of recommendation were going to be... These are, in my opinion, the most important criteria in graduate admission, followed very closely by one's statement of purpose (in many instances, as important as, if not more than, those three mentioned above) and relevant research experience.
Plus, knowing at least what country you are applying from can reveal a lot about your preparation, because a lot of schools in Asia and Europe supply highly trained and qualified applicants.

If they have personal relations with some of the faculty involved at that place, your chances of getting accepted grow significantly.
