Does admission officers look my essays at once?
Hello, I’m completing my supplemental essay. While writing it, I ommited some parts that may help understand the supplemental essay about what I mentioned in personal statement and additional information.
Do they check my essay at once? Or do I have to make the parts more detail?

That's for replying to my comment, now I understand what you mean. Well, I am almost sure the admission officers will look for your personal statement before any other essay you submitted, but regardless, I would still describe some activities in every essay even if you already mentioned it in another essay. If it was already mentioned in the same essay, then you could say "as previously mentioned", but another essay... it's not a good idea.
I don't think it will hurt you or influence their decision, but it's best to facilitate in giving them information about you.
So typically at selective schools one person reads your entire application. Sometimes 2 people but then its forwarded to a comitee of roughly 7 people who takes the person who reviewed it recomendation into account then they make a majority or sometimes unamanoimus decision. But the critical person to impress is the person who reads your essays first but everyone else will glance at your ECs so acroymns could be repeated.
