    Re: the same as me or i?

    Welcome, bosunyum.

    "as" has more than one functions. In [1] it functions as a relative pronoun, so a subject-verb pair is required,

    [1] She is the same age as I am.

    In [2] "as" functions as a preposition, so an [u]object pronoun[/u[ is required,

    [2] She is the same age as me.

    The possessive pronoun "mine" doesn't work. [3] is ungrammatical.

    [3] She is the same age as *mine.

    All the best.
