I have read several posts regarding this question such as "Is transferring to another university an option for an unhappy PhD student?" and "Changing University in First year of Phd", but none of them apply to my situation.
Background: I am a first-year computer science Ph.D. student, I started my Ph.D. in the spring semester and so I am in the second semester. I am fully funded, but the problem is that the income I get from the university is very low and I did not know that I have to pay about 2000 each semester for insurance. My mind is always busy thinking about how can I provide this money. It's hard, as I have the potential to do really well but most of the time I am struggling with financial issues.
The second but minor issue is my advisor, she isn't an expert in her field, we just go forward with trial and error, and I am the kind of person who needs to read deeply to understand all aspects before trying. We have to have a strong reason to test an approach so before testing we should take a good amount of time, but she just likes to force me to test without in-depth understanding. It's disappointing for me. Most of the time the results are not good. I said this is a minor issue as I am self-learner and I will find a way to do the way I like.
I talked with my advisor regarding this, she said we have to survive in this time, and I don't have any other sources, she tried to make me happy by not giving me the TA of a subject that I don't like, but it does not work for me. I need to make my mind free and focus on the research.
With these explanations, how can I convince another university and professor to accept me?
