<p>I think you have a 50/50 chance of getting in out-of-state. Make sure your recommendations & essays kick ass.</p>


<p>Thanks for your comments.</p>

<p>I would have to pretty much agree with Globablist maybe around 40% shot. What will probably get you is your class rank, UVA is really looking for someone in the top 10% of their class. Good luck</p>


<p>Let me give you more informaton on my class rank.</p>

<p>I go to a large public school in Chicago. Through six semesters 40 kids have never gotten a B. In addition they don't give you weighted credit for more than 3 honors of AP classes. I typically took 5 honors or AP classes every year and only got weighted credit for 3 of them. So you see that a kid taking a non weighted class can have an advantage in class rank. Too bad I didn't think about that when I was a freshmen.</p>
