You could also consider looking into some Canadian schools - they don't require the GRE at all.
U Toronto, U Waterloo, McGill, and U British Columbia all offer strong math programs.
A note on Canadian Universities: its highly unusual to get accepted into a phd program from a bachelors,
but don't worry: they pay for your masters. I personally think this is a better system.

An alternative is you can be inducted into a Masters program, but then switch into a PhD program at that Canadian university. I know a few people who have done this but generally you need to be exceptional.

2. Also, if I get my MS in Canada but then apply to phD programs in the US, do I have to take classes and the comprehensive exam at the phD program in the US? Or will I just go straight into the phD research?
3. If I get my MS in canada but then apply for phD in US, will I be considered a domestic or foreign applicant? If I'll be considered foreign, then having to get nearly a perfect score for the math GRE to apply to US phD programs won't be fun..
4. How much easier is it to get into canada MS programs compared to US phD programs?

I applied there as a wild card (rest were american universities) because I really dig the idea of living in Halifax for some reason and because it fit what I was looking for in terms of research areas and size and everything. Plus, their website has a picture of a math pizza party going on so who was I to resist that.
Seriously though, I applied but I don't really have many details on the school as far as reputation goes. Anyone have anything they can share?
