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.
