    Your GPA is well above the UVA average and your EC's are pretty good. The University of Virginia accepts a huge number of students from Virginia in comparison to other states; I'd say that if you're from there, you have a great chance.

    @socollege19 - chances are so hard. While the academic record is very important, UVA looks at other things too. No one can really guess how you will come across in essays, and in recs, etc. Make sure you have taken the most rigorous classes available to you (or do in senior year), and keep up the good grades. I think getting in OOS ( @clamchowder6 OP says they are OOS - out of state) is very difficult and will depend on where you are applying from too (under or over represented state). But, just looking at pure stats, you may want to try for a highter SAT. Have you taken the SAT Subject Test math level 2 and/or a science? Good luck.

    Having just gone through this process with my D, I can tell you that these "Chance Me" responses mean absolutely nothing. My suggestion is use Naviance for a more accurate estimation of your chances, but even Naviance isn't a great predictor. Things seem to change from year to year in every school. For my D, UVA was a throw in application and at the end of the process it turned out to be her favorite by far. She is attending this fall. Do the best you can on your tests, take a rigorous senior course load and shoot for all the schools you want to attend. You will be just fine.

    I second what @quadaces posted. No one can really tell you what your chances are because the numbers alone don't mean much. UVA, and other similar schools, will look at multiple factors. There is no way to know over the internet what your GPA means in relation to your school, and in relation to other applicants to UVA. My DS will attend UVA this fall, and although a bunch of class mates are also attending, kids with over 4.0s and high SAT scores were denied admission. Look at the admitted stats page, put together well written, honest essays that tell the Ad. Comm something about you and what you bring to the school and cast a wide net. Have numerous schools on your list that you would love to attend. Good luck, and enjoy your senior year.
