I'm not real sure how far the Campus is actually located off of I-70 though, I am guessing maybe only a couple of miles.

I would check what the airfares are into KC and ST. Louis, it might almost be easier for you to fly into SL, you would head West towards Columbia on I-70 from the airport. The airport in St. Louis is actually West of the downtown area.
Thanks again for the info. Columbia has a small airport but I am thinking of just flying into there- otherwise I'd have to get a rental car to drive in a place that I have no idea where I am going. So we are thinking this might be easier. I am going to call Missouri again tomorrow and hopefully get a clear answer from them as to what is the best way. But I appreciate all the help!

You're welcome. Of course, that'll work too. I'm not a big fan of flying into small/regional airports, probably why I didn't think to suggest it-sorry.

If you end up having to fly into SL, Columbia is a straight shot up I-70 from the airport, there are lots of signs once you get into Columbia which will direct you to the campus.

Again, best of luck with your Interview! So happy and excited for you!

I live right outside of Kansas City, south of the airport. If you need any information or help from the KC airport or anything else, please contact me. I am 2 hours from Columbia.

I also know people that are very familiar with the Mizzou campus, undergraduate, so if you have any questions whatsoever I can get you some answers.

I went there to visit last year, it is maybe 4 miles from I-70.

Also, while you are there, try to visit Shakespeare's Pizza. It is a big Mizzou hangout and has one of the best pizzas in the country. You can probably get a good feel of what campus life would be there. Everybody that visits Columbia always makes a stop there.

I didn't see this until now, but thanks for answering my pm! I appreciate it all your advice so far. Tried calling again today and no one was there- typical college campus I guess was closed for the week. Why send out invites and then be closed so I can't talk to anyone about it? Well anyone, mom says to wait until Monday and call again. THEN we will book a plane.

Thanks again for everyone's support! No news from any of the other schools yet.

UPDATE:

I booked my flight this morning. A lot of the interview times were being taken so I figured I had better book now rather than wait until tomorrow to talk to them. I am glad I did since every flight is in the afternoon and almost all the morning interviews are taken.
I am flying into Columbia from Dullas DC (with a lay-over in Atlanta) and same for the return trip.

My interview is at 7:30am on Sunday morning and I fly out at 12:20 that afternoon.

I hope this all goes well! Still need to book a hotel but that I will wait until I talk to them tomorrow.

Congrats & best of luck on the interview! MU is a great school & I know Dirks Fund uses them quite a bit for the special needs rescues.
