However, if you're looking to go to another school to finish, you are going to need to explain to them why you left one phd program already since the masters wasn't a terminal degree.
It's also not a matter of being kicked out, that can be easily proved not to be the case. It's the commitment issue, and falls in line with the transfer policy of most school which usually don't allow it. It probably won't be as bad as that, but unless it was a terminal masters you need to be very clear and intelligent with the way you handle future apps.
