    Pronoun case

    Which one is correct?
    He seemed to be suffering from the same problems as I
    or
    He seemed to be suffering from the same problems as me.

    Thank you!

    Re: Pronoun case

    Which one would you choose and why?

    Re: Pronoun case

    I would choose the latter one because it sounds more correct and I read that pronouns following prepositions (in this case it is from) are always in the objective case. However, I am not sure.

    Re: Pronoun case

    The latter one is correct informally, but "than" is not a preposition there. It is a conjunction, so "I" is grammatically correct. The sentence could be stated as: "He seemed to be suffering from the same problems as I (am)."

    Re: Pronoun case

    Be aware, though, that you will hear "me" at the end of these kinds of sentences frequently in BrE.
