Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I have to attend an interview weekend?
Yes. This is because the interview weekend is much more than just an interview. Applicants learn more about NET’s history, prayer life, and lifestyle in addition to participating in small group discussions, large group presentations and more. The weekend is designed not only for us to get to know you better, but for you to get to know us as well.
Do I need to stay for the whole weekend?
Yes, the time we have together is relatively short (36 hours). It is important that you be present for the entire weekend so we can get to know you as well as possible in that time.
What if I’m not from the United States?
