    I think adcoms know that you are trying to sell yourself, so I don't think there should be a fear of sounding like a tool. Just say something about yourself that you think is fairly unique. For instance, I would say I am an engineer that does behavioral research. So I am well versed in blah, blah, blah.

    I'd bring 6 million dollars in donations to the university if accepted, and another 20 million after I graduate. After that, I will fund a research lab for a cure for cancer, and upon success, will market it for a reasonable price and donate another 50 million to the university. All of this, is, of course... funded by the lottery ticket I plan to buy upon acceptance to your school. If I'm that lucky, heck, the lottery should be no sweat.
