Yeah, most people have heard of Rutgers, but I don't think their law schools have a strong national reputation. If you want to work in California, people are probably going to wonder why the heck you went there. I would retake the LSAT. Hopefully you could raise your score enough so that you could get into Hastings or Davis or perhaps even Berkeley or Stanford. What is your GPA? If it is low, that will restrict where you can get in even if you kill the LSAT.
Rutgers-Camden would also be good for Philly, since it's right across the bridge, but it is pretty regional. I'm planning on Rutgers-Newark myself because I want to stay in the NYC area, so I'm not knocking RU at all.
Also, if you haven't taken a good look at Camden yet, you really should. I have no idea about the campus, but I remember taking a bus through Camden some years ago on the way to Philly and being fairly horrified at how blighted it was, and I'm not sheltered. It could just have been that area, but just make sure you know what you're in for.
