My friend had the personal statement comments in his acceptance letter last year. Unfortunately, I think it's pre-fab. Sorry guys! I'm sure your personal statements really were great, though!!

I have good friends at both of these schools and bascially what I can say about the two is that GMU has a significantly better reputation, particularly in the DC metro area. If you want to practice in Philly or NJ then Rutgers is probably a better choice for you, as my understanding is that it is a pretty regional school. Living is cheap in Camden, but it was just recently named the 6th most dangerous city in the U.S. Living in Philly (which is about 5 mins from Camden) is probably comparable to the cost of living in northern Virginia.

It might be in your best interest to apply to some others, it looks like some of those schools might be a stretch with your numbers and it's always better to be safe than sorry. My numbers are about the same and I applied largely in the 20-40 range. Good luck!
