A lot of people this year (myself included) had offers from many other places, offering scholarships etc, but chose UGA because of the price. That will continue as long as the economy is bad and people are hesitant to take on large debt.
UNC is similarly as cheap. Bama is throwing $$ at these people. Indiana is throwing an INSANE amount of money to anyone with the numbers to even be accepted to UGA right now (like, full tuition). Some people will chose UGA, sure, but I don't forsee their target audience biting like they are hoping.
People applying to or contemplating UGA are aiming for jobs in the South and Southeast. Indiana has absolutely zero reputation in the region, especially Atlanta.
UNC is similarly cheap if you're already an NC resident or plan to jump through the much more difficult hoops in order to obtain residency. Georgia residency is really easy to obtain after the first year... it'd actually be a surprise if someone didn't get it.
As far as Alabama, you'd have to throw a lot of money at me to convince me to go to a school whose best job prospects were in the state of Alabama. UGA dominates Atlanta and gives you a better in to one of, if not the, major legal market in the South.
