You used to have to fill out, by hand (!), every piece of documentation required by your prospective college, meaning you only really had time to apply for about three or four colleges at max.

In 2016, you can apply for dozens of colleges with a couple clicks and copying and pasting the same information into the same fields on websites around the country.
