Do you want to stay in Indiana and is BigLaw not important to you? Indiana
Do you want to stay in the MidAtlantic region? GW (With full-ride, not almost full ride)
If you can get full ride, GW is tempting over Michigan and UVA. Not having debt certainly frees up a lot of options when pursuing a job, but then again you wouldn't have as many options to start with coming out of GW, so it's just personal risk-reward preference.
Tempting, but it really depends on what your final CoA is. As noted almost definitely doesn't cut it.
GW offers a lot of people a 105k scholly. With their estimated total CoA at 210k, you'll still be shouldering 105k worth of debt. I think I'd need GW's CoA to be something like 70k or so for me to consider it over Mich/UVa.
