Question

can i get a transfer into F1 to persue a Phd program in which i have been accepted for


Answer
It may be possible to get an I-539 approved to change to F-1, but on your first trip outside U.S. you have to go to Embassy for F-1 visa stamp and they could give you big time problems. If you stay here and in status until your mom's case comes up, you have a good chance.
