About This Quiz

If you're a true Harry Potter fan, you must have, at one point or another, waited by the door for your acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Sadly, for most of us, that never happens and we don't get the chance to go to the castle unless we go to the theme park in Miami. But today, we're going to give you the chance to slide your own character into the world of Harry Potter. 

We're going to allow you to basically build your own student. You can tell us what house they'll be in, what pet they're bringing to Hogwarts and what class they'd suck at. Tell us if they'd be a fan of Harry's or if they'd try to stop him. We'll even want you to tell us what they're going to look like, including whether another ginger besides the Weasleys will be going to Hogwarts. 

So, create this guy or gal for us, and feel free to build them in your likeness if you feel like it- you can even pretend that it's you who's going to the castle. Tell us all about this new Hogwarts student so that we can tell you which house you truly belong in.
