I was looking around their site and found this:
How to choose a graduate program in astronomy: advice from the other side
Some of it might be useful, but overall it seems weird and complicated. And I don't get the guy's sense of humor.

My school offered the option to put a seal over the back of the envelope, to show that it hadn't been tampered with. Did you get the transcripts from the registrar and mail them out yourself, or did you have the registrar mail them directly? I recall at least one school I applied to required the latter.
