** Also remember one thing Snape is super bitter about not being able to be the DADA teacher, but what dumbledore never tells him is that [[spoiler: Voldermort jinxed the position, meaning teachers never lasted a year, and Dumbledore used that knowlage to make his death seem like the only reason Snape fled]]

** also judging by the fact that the train is clearly a morning train and they arrive after sundown (which is aproximately 8pm in sept) and its clearly really dark and not dusk, they must be quite north in scotland (example is that the average train journey from london to glasgow which is just alil sourth west of the center of scotland, takes about 7-8 hours) so i would say they are probably near aberdeen or maybe Oban.

** Is lice a problem in Britain? I'm under the impression that it's not that common for a European country standard that kids have lice in the heads. In many schools in the west people share caps and helmets in sports event in most high schools.

*** Yes and No. It is very rare for anybody in the UK to have head lice as a chronic situation. However, they are easily transferable amongst school children, so it only takes one, and when the schools come back after summer break there always tends to be minor outbreaks. Many schools advise parents to use "nit" combs (to catch the eggs) and special shampoo for a while after summer break ends, and private boarding schools will ensure that children there are regularly checked by a "nit nurse" to ensure there are no outbreaks. Presumably in Hogwarts this is one of Poppy's duties. Creating the shampoo may even be one of Snape's duties as potions master too.

**But the books made clear that Dumbledore do not holds absolute power in the school, the Ministry has a lot of influence and there's also some sort of board of directors made of parents (Malfoy it's said to be a member for a time) so influential wealthy people still have enough leverage to pull some strings, and on the other, well, again, it is like denying entrance to Osama Bin Laden's son to Saudi Arabia's only university. Hogwarts is the only magical school in the entire country.

** Everyone has some measure of those qualities in them, no matter how small, the Hat picks based on that. Failing all else though, "Hufflepuff takes the rest". Hufflepuff house would prefer diligent and hardworking, but it'll take anyone that doesn't have what it takes for the other houses; that is canon.
