It turns out you actually would be able to afford Hogwarts. But that doesn't change the fact that you haven't been accepted.

This week, fans have been debating how much it would actually cost to attend Hogwarts after a Mic writer calculated that tuition would be $43,031 for the first year. You'd have to clock a lot of work-study hours guarding horcrux how-tos in the Hogwarts Castle library to make a dent in that.

But it turns out, that estimate was not exactly accurate. It didn't factor in the 100% that's covered by The Ministry of Magic. Rowling says that students don't have to pay anything to attend Hogwarts.
