    I just used Migration Assistant to bring over a user to a new MBP, and it appears as though I have no permissions on the Library folder. Firstly, I cannot "cd" to it because it results in "Permission Denied". I tried "Repair Permissions" but this did not change anything. Any known work arounds?

    All I had to do was logon as the user who ran Migration Assistant and give myself permission in Finder. Now that I can see it, my Library directory looks way too sparse, like it did not copy over anything from the old machine. I guess Migration Assistant was a bust for me.
