Similar to many posts, just different schools. Michigan State with full tuition scholarship vs. UC Davis at sticker. Opinions?

Depends on where you want to practice.

Yeah, but if the answer is anywhere other than California, retake. Or stay in Michigan.

You have to have some better options if you got into Davis.

Don't do Davis at sticker --> it's not worth it given the employment prospects. Only do Michigan if you're fine with staying in Michigan after graduation. FWIW I have looked into these two schools extensively because I'm facing the same situation.

T-14s are maybe worth it at sticker.

T20-30 are definitely not.

180k in debt is generally unintelligent. Michigan state is a third tier school, don't go there either.

There are a few T20's I'd pay sticker for like Minnesota. If you are below top 1/2 after 1L grades drop out, no matter where you're at unless you have family connections to big law or some ritzy regional firm.
