I am not very experienced in writing admission essays, but since I had had experience in interviews (which I think bear a slight resemblance when it comes to evaluation), I would try to offer my opinion anyway.
I think it's not good to be overly humble as it might make you look incompetent and unconfident. You should present your competence and confidence in the best way you could, just be careful not to go overboard, lest you are deemed as self-important and vain.
Is there a certain scope or subjects of your admission essay?
