Why do you want to live in the Phid House?
What are you looking for from a communal living community? Do you have experience living in an intentional community? What would you contribute?
Living in Phid comes with a built-in community of friends, but it also means choosing to be an active member of that community. Are you willing to fully participate in all aspects of living in a communal house, including both the fun (House dinners, movie nights, bonfires, and Phid Party) and the day-to-day tasks necessary to keep the house running (chores and cleaning up after yourself)? What do you think will be the most challenging part of living in a communal space for you?
Do you have any special skills or hobbies? For example, are you a computer genius, a culinary expert, classical pianist, video game prodigy, or a master of DIY projects?
How do you feel about dogs?
Scenario Question: You are a second semester 1L at Phid who has just been elected House Manager. One of the primary responsibilities of the House Manager is to make sure that all residents complete their weekly chore in a timely manner. One of the 3Ls in the house is one semester away from graduating and totally checked out of “this whole law school thing.” He used to be one of the most diligent cleaners in the house, but he has skipped his weekly chore three weeks in a row now. You bring the issue up with him, and he completes the chore on the fourth week, but does the bare minimum (a terrible job) while shouting “I’m just here so I won’t get fined!” (there is a monetary fine for missing chores, but you almost never implement it). You know that he’s in the wrong, but he’s been in the house for three years and you’ve barely been there a semester. You’re worried that if his behavior doesn’t stop, he may negatively shift the culture of the house. How do you address the issue? Is there a previous comparable experience that you’ve handled in the past?
Bonus #1: We throw one big party and a House Dinner each semester. Pick our next theme for either of these events (past themes have included The Phast and the Phurious, My Phirst Rodeo, Space Phorce, and Studio Phifty-Phour).
Bonus #2: Here’s the situation: It’s starting to get cold out. The squirrels are fat and trying to get fatter. You leave open the bathroom window and one gets in and rips apart everything in sight. When you send an email out to the house to explain the situation. What .GIF do you include?
What TikTok/Vine represents your vibe?
