Didn’t Get Your Hogwarts Letter? No Problem.

We’ve all been there, waiting desperately on the mailbox around our 11th birthdays (even on Sundays) for a lovely owl to come deliver our acceptance letter to Hogwarts. And we’ve waited. And waited.

Fast forward seven years, and you may or may not have accepted that you’re a Muggle, or a Squib, or maybe just a late bloomer, but at this point, your chances of going to Hogwarts aren’t looking so good. But that doesn’t mean the dream has to die.

Luckily, America is filled to the brim with colleges and universities that can serve as wonderful replacements for the time you missed out on at Britain’s most famous school of witchcraft and wizardry. If you’re smart enough, you can still spend four years among castles, courtyards, cloisters, and quads that will transport you to your magical happy place.
