How easy is it to transfer around? From UNB to Osgoode or UT or Mcgill?

I am no expert but in my reading about the Ontario law schools it seems like they are very cautious with transfer students.  Most literature states that only a very few students with either high academic standing or those with special circumstances (such as returning to a school closer to home due to family tragedy, etc.) will be considered for a transfer.

Easier to transfer from high rep schools to low rep schools.

Grades are a very important indicator + circumstance.

Good reasons:

1) family is moving
2) fiance/wife is moving
3) special focus the school provides

Any of those 3 + good GPA + not coming from a "lesser" school is a good chance of success transferring.
