    She is of the same height as me.

    Which one is correct?

    1. She is of the same height as me.

    2. She is of the same height as I am.

    Is the sentence below better than the above-mentioned two?

    We are of the same height.

    I think below is better if put in that way. But I think they are both correct, at least, I've heard quite a few people use both before.

    Re: She is of the same height as me.

    Thanks for your input. I've also heard people say both ways. However, I'd like to know which of the first two is grammatically correct. I think it's the second one, but would like to hear from you guys.

    1. She is of the same height as me.

    2. She is of the same height as I am.

    You don't need the "of".
    She is the same height as me / as I am. Both are grammatical these days.

    Even shorter:
    We are the same height.
