However, you are paying sticker at said school. Knowing that you are a poor and that crushing debt wouldn't be good regardless, would transferring to a top school which would give financial aid be a legitimate reason to transfer up?

Depends on what you mean by "legitimate reason." If you mean would it make sense economically since you would be saving money, then the answer is, obviously, yes. However, it's not the primary reason for transferring you should give in your personal statement or at OCI (not sure how "legitimate" HYS or a future employer will think the fact that you're transferring to save some bucks in tuition is).
