I did it last week. I'd just speak honestly about the things you bring to the table using references from the site - e.g. they value students with interesting work experience so you can talk about how you would bring interesting perspectives to the student body via your work in xyz. Talk about interesting academic projects you've done - things more in depth. They say specifically not to talk about gpa/lsat so I think just think of things that are unique / were challenging about your academic or work history and mention them. It's always going to be self-promotion for everyone so no worries.
I've really been putting this off. I've gotten all the financial info submitted but just can't seem to bring myself to write another essay about myself at the moment lol
