  1. inclusivity question, ok

  7. all of this on the same page as proposal questions
  8. #TODO: Paige, Andrew, Celeste, hash out “interview prep” questions
  9. “how will you be motivational” seems to be the same as “actively lead”
  • anyway, we could see it from the interview—put it in interview prep?
  • we should take it off
  1. “Why the downspace?” too utilitarian
  • how will it fill the space/why place it in the downspace?
  • maybe they don't need to have the same ideology
  • should ask “What is the draw of the downspace?”
  • should we be more vague with an explicit statement that there is no right answer?
  • maybe just: There is no right answer, so tell me, why pw?
  • how do we convey that you can be honest and say the truth if the reason is just that pw is the only place it could happen because of money and space
  1. we shouldn't use “We as a board” as a phrase since we don't always agree
  2. “Why pw?” should exist
  3. Ben's comment about using questions as waypoints is good
  4. should state that there is no requirement
  5. #TODO: Celeste and Andrew, draft up vagueness paragraph
  6. failure should not necessarily be seen as something to avoid
  7. maybe keep as an interview question
