    Same as me

    Is the second sentence in this little dialogue correct and natural?

    - I graduated 3 years ago.
    - Same as me.

    Not a teacher.

    I would have used So did I.

    Re: Same as me

    Same as me is fine in many places (though your teachers might tell you it's wrong). This isn't one of them. Me too! would be a common response which would sound natural and might also be dismissed as substandard in some circles.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Same as me

    So if "Same as me." and "Me too!" are both incorrect does that mean "So did I." is the only correct way?

    Re: Same as me

    I don't much like 'same as me', but 'me too' is very common, as GoesStation said. Also, in a dialogue, as an interjection rather than a complex sentence, there is nothing wrong with 'me too!'

    There's rarely only one correct way of saying anything.

    So did I/As did I/I did too/I did as well. These are all possible replies.
    I am not a teacher
