Applying to Uni could be more convenient…

For each application I fill out, I have to send in a number of recommendation letters as well as transcripts from previous schools. Each transcript request costs money, and is not immediate. It will have to be done time and again. It would be nice if there were a central clearing house all colleges used. So the transcript would only need to be sent once. To ally privacy concerns, potential applicants could OK the sending of a particular school’s transcript to the school they wish to apply to.
 
Being outside my home country, it only makes it that much more inconvenient. In this day and age, I am surprised a lot more of the admissions process has not been moved online. Or at least keeping a central database for schools.
