J.K. Rowling on Gaining Admission to Hogwarts

By Maryann Yin 

Hogwarts (GalleyCat)Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has become well-known for delighting her fans on Twitter. Over the weekend, one reader asked Rowling about how to secure a letter of admission to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Rowling gave this reply: “All these people saying they never got their Hogwarts letter: you got the letter. You went to Hogwarts. We were all there together.” In a second tweet, she also quoted beloved headmaster Albus Dumbledore: “Of course it happened inside your head, but why on earth should that mean it wasn’t real?”

In addition, Rowling also answered questions about Albus Severus Potter’s name and Draco Malfoy’s birthday. We’ve chronicled all of the exchanges in a Storify post embedded below—what do you think? (via BuzzFeed.com)
