I did some undergrad time at GW, and would probably go there.  The area is so nice and there's never "nothing to do."  The metro station is right there, shopping and sightseeing all around.  This one's a no-brainer for me.  

Since I'm sure you'd get a high quality education at any of these schools, and will be burdened with loans at the end (with no scholarship or financial aid), pick the one with the most interesting surroundings (did I mention the museums?).

Of those choices, I would go to GW pt. Reasons: I think that DC is a great city for law-related opportunities in general, and government jobs in particular--which is what I'm looking for.

I hear Georgia is beautiful, pretty much year-round, but I wouldn't want to live/work there b/c I was raised on the northeast.

My vote is for GWU as well. It is also going to depend on the area of law you want to work in. My law firm is notorious for only recruiting from the top 10, but has a huge preference for GWU grads (even over GULC grads) especially for IP law. It is really going to depend on what area of law and what area of the country you want to practice in...if it is undecided, GWU will open more doors for you when you finally do decide.

I'd definitely go with GW PT.  Actually, I really am going to go to GW PT, so it's not even a hypothetical.  I have personal and professional reasons for wanting to stay in the DC area and GW wins hands down over GMU in my opinion.  The school is more established and much larger and they have a lot more to offer in terms of classes, networking and on-campus groups/activities.  I'm planning on sticking with the part-time program all the way through so I can avoid paying for any of this, but people who want to switch to full-time can do it after their first semester.

GMU PT...it's sooooooo much cheaper than GW and for me, will take me just as far as a degree from GW PT.  I was born in Georgia, I don't care to return...and New Orleans is just miserable to live in, can't stand that level of humidity (and I'm from NC, so I know humidity)
