My friend applied with a 1390 and a tougher courseload than you(ie more APs) and she did not get in. Has many extracurriculars like yours (class pres, two varsity sports all four years, nhs, employed, etc). She was interested in premed and was not even waitlisted. Just FYI.

Out of state admissions to Carolina are extremely competitive considering that about 82% of the people that they accept are in-state. I'd say its a match/reach for you. Applying to Carolina out of state is almost like applying to the Ivies.

UNC anything is hard because they have to make over 80% of their class from NC by state law.

is the same true for UCONN? or is it easier for an out of stater?

Uconn is not nearly as tough. Probably to the point where you can't even compare unc-ch to Uconn. Uconn isn't even close to being a Tier I school while UNC is a Top 25. Even though the state of Connecticut has given Uconn 5 billion dollars I still don't think it will ever break the Top 50 and definetely not Top 25.

what im wondering is (although UCONN may not be as good a school as UNC) is it still tough for out of staters to be admitted. because i heard they also had a 80% Conn. to 20% out of state admission i think.

UConn is not as tough on out of staters as UNC Chapel Hill. You are not out of the picture at UNC but my friend's daughter was denied instate with your stats two years ago. The kids I know who get into UNC CH have stats akin to those applying to ivies unless they are legacies or have some other hook.

UConn may have an 80/20 in/out of state ratio, but that is not how their admissions numbers go. They do not get as many out of state app as UVa, UNC, UMich and few other state schools tend to get. Your stats are good for an in there. Also Penn State, U Del, UMd would welcome your app--most state schools would. Its just the above mentioned few that have very high out of state cutoffs.
