Harvard prospective students

Do I really have to just list my intellectual activities for Harvard’s first supplemental prompt?
Answered

The prompt: Your intellectual life may extend beyond the academic requirements of your particular school. Please use the space below to list additional intellectual activities that you have not mentioned or detailed elsewhere in your application. These could include, but are not limited to, supervised or self-directed projects not done as school work, training experiences, online courses not run by your school, or summer academic or research programs not described elsewhere. (150 words)

Shall I just list my intellectual activities (bullet point format) or should I rather write a whole essay on 1 of them?

You should list all your activities not just 1 in detail just follow exact directions as the prompt instructs to be safe.
