I think you have to feel the admissions staff out.
The best way of doing that, I think, is to just show up at the admissions office during business hours (people seem to have better luck when they show up in person) and present yourself, saying you have a number of concerns, and ask if theyres any way possible you could set up an appointment with someone. Your professional, mature apperance will aid you in person; on the phone youre just another vocie in their ear.
You certainly have an unusual situation, with your circumstances limited to indianapolis.
Anyway, if you show up, professional and friendly, the worst they can do is say "interivews arent granted", or come to an "information session". I think what will happen is someone will set up a time, and more likely, someone will talk to you right there on the spot.
My very limited experience working in bureaucracies taught me that the most is accomplished by "just showing up." By going there and asking to set up an appointment, you're not putting out anyone or being a pest. Hell, I hound one of the schools I'm trying for weekly. If not for me, my now committee-ready app would be in the hold files, waiting on a pers. statement that they lost in transmission.
Good luck. And another thing-- One of the law schools sent me a letter explicitly saying not to contact the admissions office. Unless you got such a letter, i say head down to IUPUI and see to whom you might speak.
