I've spoken to one of the UNC deans and he said that the median LSAT is about the same for in and out of state, but in state have greater variation.  Go for it if you're at or above their median.  If you're below (depending on how far below), your chance of admission drops sharply.  Basically, you have less room for error.

From Ohio, got in with their top scholarship, 3.97, 166 LSAT (the LSAT is the lowest to receive their top scholarship, as far as I know).

Also a Republican which was a factor that set me apart from about 90% of their applicants, lol. That may or may not help you though.
