I think to be in the "sphere" of good externship opportunities, you'd have to be able to work there all day twice a week, and the school has to let you do that for credit. Dunno if that's practical from UVA or if they grant credit?
NU is super flexible about letting you take advantage of all the orgs in Chicago, from CFTC to EPA, and it's easy to work there a couple days a week. DC has even more awesome orgs and my understanding is that most of the DC-area schools try to empower students to take advantage of those opportunities.
