Wilmington is a very nice city, much larger than Chapel Hill alone. In my opinion however, Chapel Hill eclipses it in the important aspects. The town is smaller but has access to several large cities. The campus is beautiful, academics are both a priority and top notch. For me, there was never another real option after Carolina!
Yea, its apples and oranges. Wilmington is a nice institution, however I find it hard to believe that it can compete with UNC academically and resource wise. But Only you can make that judgement in the end. Visit both schools and the surrounding areas to get a feel for both options.

Simply put, UNC is all about academics. Students who excel here don't try to take shortcuts. The school itself boasts some of the best facilities in the country as well as the academic talent to match it. Furthermore, graduates from Carolina are top notch, with 12 prior Pulitzer Prize winners, one president, and many Nobel laureates. Professors at Carolina have high distinctions and have received awards for their contributions in their respective fields of study.
One of the best things about UNC is its sense of community in that professors are largely accessible to students. All professors on campus have office hours and will work with students to make appointments should there be a conflict. Some professors also try to meet with individual students for coffee or a meal to discuss class topics. In lower-level courses with larger class sizes, TAs are also made available to students for questions. Another great thing about Carolina academics is the sheer number of resources available to students in a rut, such as tutoring and the Writing Center, where staff will proofread those nasty term papers that are the bane of any collegiate's semester.
