At my current institution I've heard that the cutoff GRE score for domestic applicants is 40th percentile and the cutoff for internal applicants is either 50th or 60th percentile. So your GRE score would be good enough for this place. It's a mid-ranked program and definitely not a bad place to be by any means. It's not quite intense enough of a program for me though, so I'm attempting to transfer to a top 25 place.
I know that SUNY Stony Brook is top 25 and doesn't even require a math GRE score. In fact, it's ranked as the #4 best program in the country for geometry according to US News. So there's at least one very
good program that doesn't require the math GRE.
