After I read this was for an application, it occurred to me that you may be missing the point of the assignment. I can't say for certain, because I don't have the requirements in front of me - but at least consider this.
They may not be -just- after seeing how well you can write. Equally likely, they're interested in what kind of person you are. Are you a well-rounded, worldly person and a good critical thinker? Or, have you been living under a rock?
I suppose it depends on what you have to say - but you could write on just about anything as long as you can defend your position. I don't think they'd be judging you on what your opinions are - but rather, whatever they may be, on how well you can defend them.
So I'd suggest not worrying about what they may think of you. If they're objective, they won't care that much.
... So you need this site to crowd-source ideas for a literary arts program application? How in the hell do you plan on keeping up with the coursework? They call creative writing creative for a reason—you need a fuckton of ideas. Do yourself a favour and sit down for a few hours and think of things that you like that other people hate, and things that other people hate that you like; then analogize them to current events. Or just write about how God hates abortion but you love it.
Of course you have opinions on things. Unless you are dead (zombies count) or a robot programmed to be boring then you have opinions on things.
You're building this up to be way more difficult than it is. Don't look for something unusual to have an opinion on. Think about the stuff around you and the stuff you see and find the thing you have a STRONG opinion on. Your writing will be better if it's about something you know and something you're passionate about. Some random topic you only slightly care about picked because it's unusual isn't going to get you points.
Now go and opinionate hard on something relevant to YOU.
