    in or at the same place

    I will see you at the same place tomorrow.
    (from an exercise book)
    I don't think
    at is correct here and it should be replaced by in. What do you say
    Thanks.

    Re: in or at the same place

    It depends where 'the same place' is. If it is, for example, a bus stop, then only 'at' is possible.

    Re: in or at the same place

    When the bell rang this morning, the students were in their seats.
    For the sentence above, I wonder if in can be replaced by at.

    Thanks.
