There are lots of schools that offer masters in math out there.
Edit: As to speaking with professors. IF you can convince a professor to take you as an advisee, and thats a big IF, that will help. Be careful here, because if a professor agrees to take you as an advisee you are basically bound to that institution or professor (and if you go elsewhere you will make yourself look very bad, academia is a small world) However otherwise probably not. It is still a good idea to contact professors, if only to find out about their research and the program, but don't think it will improve your chances of being accepted.
