That might help, I guess. Therwise, try to apply to schools that don’t require MGRE. I don’t know much about applications. Sorry. But I have seen that people that don’t do good usually write a letter explaining what happened.
The general GRE math section and the math subject GRE cover pretty different material and have a very different set of people taking them. Also, the subject GRE can pretty rough for anyone without a good amount of preparation and practice tests.
As for OP, I don't know anything about how competitive admissions are for those schools, but I think you should be able too find a program that will accept you (and maybe even pay you). Look for applied math programs that don't require a background in analysis/algebra, like the UMass Amherst masters program. I don't know about the other schools on your list, maybe you have already done this.
