Anyone who has watched just a second from the Harry Potter franchise has dreamt about going to Hogwarts. How could you not? It has moving staircases, talking paintings, while your attendance at this institution confirms that you’re a burgeoning wizard, too. But, if it actually existed, how much how would it cost to attend Hogwarts? Well, a group of die-hard Harry Potter fans have figured it out.
Kudos to the team over at Fandango for creating such a spell-binding video. So, how much would it actually cost to attend Hogwarts? Well, firstly don't forget that JK Rowling previously revealed all the tuition fee is covered by The Ministry Of Magic. But of course you still have to factor in buying 7 years of supplies from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft And Wizardry List, as well as at least two pitchers of Butter Beer during your time there. Which means that you end up splashing somewhere around:
Now, that might seem like a lot, but when you take into account that you have to convert the money into dollars, then consider inflation, macroeconomics, bank fees, and national policies over a seven-year basis, it all seems to make sense.
However, according to Fandango, the main reason why Harry Potter and his chums splashed so much money during their time at Hogwarts was down to damages. You see tackling Voldermort and his cronies around the hallowed halls of the famed, gothic building resulted in quite a lot of walls and entire rooms being demolished. So much so that the total cost of this damage was somewhere around $6,945,055. But there’s more, I mean just look at all the Qudditch gear that you have to purchase, too:
While I’m not sure how much from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft And Wizardry List you’ll be able to pick up on eBay:
Still, even though the entire cost of attending Hogwarts is enough to bankrupt a small country, it would still be every muggle's dream to actually get an invite to the place. Once that's secured, you just have to hope that your parents have Bill Gates money.
