    That's kind of a toss up. I'd have to say that UVA will be a little more difficult just because it does have to admit a certain amount of in-state students. But if you're qualified enough to get into Northwestern, then your chances of getting into UVA should be pretty good.

    Yep, they're about even. UVa's out-of-state admission rate is within one or two percentage points of northwestern's.
