unc has to admit a certain # of instaters, i know last year around 18% were out of state, so that's why i think it's harder, but i personally feel like it's a better school

UNC could be harder to get into out-of-state because there is a smaller number of slots open to non-North Carolinians - like Celebrian23 said: 18%. At UVa, around 34% are from out-of-state - a limit UVa set for itself. The University of Virginia has tried to keep the state from legislating a smaller percentage, because it realizes that a more geographically diverse student body makes for a better student learning experience, since students would be exposed to different ideas and ways of thinking and living. It is a sentiment set forth by The University's founder, Thomas Jefferson who said, "We wish to establish...a University on a plan so broad and liberal and modern, as to be worth patronizing with the public support, and be a temptation to the youth of other States to come and drink of the cup of knowledge and fraternize with us."
A couple of years ago, the Commonwealth of Virginia discussed limiting out-of-state students in all its schools when William & Mary admitted 48% out-of-state students in one year. W&M has since pulled back its out-of-state admissions not wanting to suffer the ire of the state legislature.
