Since I was in third grade and was first introduced to the magic of Harry Potter, I have wished as much as any child that I could have gone to Hogwarts. I held out hope until long after my eleventh birthday that by some crazy twist of life, a white owl would swoop in my window carrying that elegantly scrawled letter with my acceptance and list of school supplies. But alas, I attended typical American high school. Sure, I had some good times, great times even, but I still think back every once in awhile about how different my life would have been if I could have gone to school at Hogwarts. The following is a list of reasons I truly believe we Potterheads would have done fabulously at Harry Potter's beloved school.

  1. We know more Harry Potter characters than we do classmates2003
  2. We're more fluent in Parseltongue than Spanish2004
  3. We could have apparated to school. Or taken a train. So much gas money saved2006
  4. Final exams get canceled when bad things happen2005
  5. We wouldn't have to learn statistics.200_s1
  6. You can literally summon the food you want whenever you want it2001
  7. Classes like potions. Enough said.giphy
  8. We could have all had pets. In school.giphy1
  9. We would only have to follow one sport. In which the players fly. On brooms2002
  10. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Witchcraft. and Wizardry. Sign me up.200_s2
