About This Quiz

Just imagine the stress the kids at Hogwarts must have endured during their application process. There is only one magic learning institution in the country, so if one does not get in, one must, by definition, study abroad, and do so in one's tweens! Some kids agonize about getting into an Ivy League school, but think about it: there are many Ivy League schools, but only one Hogwarts. The happiness one must feel when presented with an acceptance letter to Hogwarts must be exceptional. We know you didn't get into Hogwarts because we have an in with the dean of admissions there, but what if you had been a student at Hogwarts? To which house would you belong? In which subjects would you excel? Most importantly, who would have been your best friend from school?

To answer this last, most pressing question, we have put together a test of your personality, one that will tell us how your personality traits match up to those of the famous Hogwarts alumni. We won't be able to say for sure in which house you'd live, or if you'd ever master the broom, but we can tell you who you'd have lunch with every day. Take this quiz, and we'll let you know who you'd be friends with at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
