Any thoughts on using multiple topics (2-3) in answering the first essay question? the website uses "whatevents or people" both plural. This seems like a more reasonable question, that could show more aspects of an applicant anyway.

Of course.

Last years question was: What event or life experience has had the greatest influence in shaping your character and why? (750 words)

So clearly, at that time, they wanted to you to just pick a single most pivotal instance in your life and elaborate on it. My guess is that since people had 750 words to talk about just one instance, they would've probably over elaborated in most cases. that's why Anderson, this year has changed its question so that applicants include multiple instances that have shaped them..
