How can I avoid getting my UK Visa application rejected?

I am a US graduate student, accepted into a graduate program in the UK. I have been having significant problems getting my UK Visa processed. I'm wondering if this is typical, and if I should be worried about my chances of going to the UK being jeopardized as a result of these difficulties?

The process has taken two months so far and the demands and time constraints given to me by the UKBA have been rather unreasonable, if not logistically impossible. There seems to be nobody to talk to directly about this. Should I be worried?
The biggest problem I'm having at this point is that the UKBA has requested an official sealed transcript from my former school, within 4 days (or else my entire application will be rejected). They have specifically stated that they understand that I have graduated and that my sponsor (my UK university) has my transcripts already. The UKBA has my unofficial transcripts. They want the official sealed ones anyway. Is this typical and how were you able to resolve this type of request in such short notice?
