Hey, what are your thoughts on transferring? Is is generally harder to transfer than to get in as a freshman? Is it a risk to expect to get good grades at a low-level college and then transfer to your first choice?

Am I wrong here, or is pretty easy to transfer after say one year from a low-level college into a good-great university? Personally, I am one of the hardest workers around, but I am not all that book smart, so take that into account. However, I end up getting good grades overall, but average test scores. This is of course a back-up plan that I am considering if I don't get into the schools that we wanted to.
