    I was too vs. me too

    Dear Friends,

    Which of the following is the better choice:

    Most school-leavers are unsure about where to go on to university. I was too.


    OR

    Most school-leavers are unsure about where to go on to university. Me too.

    Meaning: I was also unsure when I was a school-leaver.


    Thank you very much.

    Both of your suggestions would be understood to mean the same thing, but I have one further suggestion:

    So was I.

    If you are talking about yourself in the past, use "I was too". If you use "me too", you are saying that you are unsure now, in the present.
