Transfer student curious about how to write transfer essays (@students who are/were in my position)

Hey! I am a current freshman at ASU majoring in Computer Science. I, unfortunately, do not enjoy ASU at all and will be attempting to transfer to Boston University, Boston College, Vanderbilt University , New York University, and University of Virginia. In order to complete my applications, I have to answer an average length essay which asks "Why do you want to transfer?" or "Why do you want to transfer to our school?". My question is how should I answer either prompt? Should I be clear and straightforward or do what was recommended to me to when I was applying as a first-year undergrad and write an essay that is allegorical and leads into why I want to transfer?

    Why do you want to transfer?

    If you have a good reason to transfer then you should tell them. If you do not have a good reason to transfer, then I think that it is unlikely that you will be able to wow admissions staff who read very large numbers of transfer applications.
