I am a New Jersey resident which leaves me having to travel pretty far for any interview that I receive. On top of that, I am only 20 years old, so I cannot rent a car and some hotels give me a problem when I try and book a room. I was able to work things out for my interview at Ohio State (it's in a week from today!!!). However, I just received an invitation to interview at Iowa State University and the travel arrangements are a bit more difficult. Since it is in such a rural area, the hotels in Ames, IA do not have airport shuttles from Des Moines. Since I can't rent a car I'm worried about getting to/from the airport which is 35-40 miles from campus. What do most of you guys without the ability to rent a car do? Do you bring a parent with you (not sure this is possible because flying is expensive)? Is it possible to ask the school to get me in touch with current students who would be willing to help me with transportation? I wasn't sure if that is an appropriate request or if I should plan on trying to find a taxi service or what not. Thanks for any advice!
