I have a new baby who will be a few months old when I sit for my MCAT. I am exclusively breastfeeding, and I get pretty full if I go longer than 4 hours without nursing or pumping.

I'm planning on applying for accommodations to either bring my pump in as a personal belonging so I can pump during my lunch break, or to have access to my baby during my lunch break so I can feed her.

I'm getting anxious that my application is going to be denied, and that I will be forced to take my exam while suffering from painful engorgement (and risk a mastitis infection). I was just wondering if anyone as any experience with this situation.
Thanks in advance
