    Any recommended way to getting to KC campus from Comfort Inn & Suites Kansas City Downtown 770 Admiral Blvd? It's less than a mile away but I'm not sure if I'm up for the walk in the AM :( Buses/street cars or best to get a lyft/uber/cab?

    Can anyone who knows the area comment about the best way to get around town? I'm planning on flying in a day before the interview & leaving the day after so that I can explore the city since KCU is a top choice for me. My SO is also coming with me.

    I'm under 25, so renting a car becomes pretty expensive (~ $150 for 2 days). However, the Uber estimator website says that getting from the airport to most of the hotels is about $20-$40 because the airport is so far north from everything. So, I'm counting on the the cost to-and-from the airport being $40-60.

    Basically my question is, do you guys think it would be worth it to get a rental car to go to-and-from the airport, to-and-from the hotel to campus, and for navigating the city? Or is Uber a better option? Or can most of the city be walked?

    Alternatively, can someone who is 25 rent a car for me :D

    Uber from airport to KC is about $25-30 one way. The city is relatively easy to navigate so your best bet might be to uber around to places ($4-10 per ride) depending on where you are going. I don't know the going rate for a rental car from the Kansas City Intl airport, so I can't give you a cost comparison.

    USAA has an allegiance program that waives rental car fees for people underage, so look into that. I've always had success booking through Hotwire, Expedia, Costco for rental cars.

    Thanks! Yeah, it's looking like renting a car just won't be feasible. Without the underage fee, it would definitely be worth it because then it's $80. I'll just have to navigate via Uber!

    KCU was the only school I interviewed in which I did not rent a car. For one reason or another, Kansas City was particularly expensive for car rentals ($80/day). When I was in Florida it was only $13! Anyway, my trip to KCU only cost me $60 total in transportation but I did not travel to the downtown area. I also stayed at a friend's place and walked to campus... But either way, it still wouldn't have cost more than $100

    Have fun, and good luck!

    II today for KC campus! The earliest dates were 2/7/18 and 2/15/18. When I went to click the 2/7 date it was already gone, so 2/15 it is! KC campus is a hot commodity.

    It was a statistic that several different student ambassadors kept telling me over and over again when I interviewed at KC. Other than that I'm honestly not sure about your question. :)

    It's not 85%. Not sure where that number came from. But KCU picks some awesome people to interview and you got a great shot if you get an interview I'm sure.
