FREE! Damn, those wizards. They get everything — flying cars, a Patronus, magic wands for goodness' sake — we mere muggles need to get our act together. According to J.K. Rowling, socialism is alive and well in the wizarding world (kinda), as the Ministry of Magic pays 100 percent of your Hogwart's tuition.
Hey J.K., our Hogwarts acceptance letter just got lost in the mail, right? This wonderful gem came to light after a recent Mic.com article combined the powers of the Internet and the Harry Potter fandom to come to a first year tuition tally equaling $43,031. While the number is a reputable one (they did their due diligence, after all), it makes us love J. K. Rowling even more to know she's down for a free education. What's next? Are each student's school supplies taken care of, too? Free Nimbus 3000's for all? We'll meet you at platform 9 3/4.
