For example, Mike and I go to the same school.

Can I rephrase it as below ?

> I go to the same school as Mike.

Or should I say

> I go to the same school as Mike's (school).

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your quick reply.
And I really appreciate you always answering my questions.

How about this one ?

I want the same car as you.
I want the same car as yours.

Which is correct ? Or both are correct, but have different meanings ?

I can easily imagine a native speaker saying either one, but much more natural and certainly correct is I want the same [kind of] car that you have.
Thank you so much !

Let me ask just one more question please.

Why is "I want the same car as yours" is OK, but "I go to the same school as Mike's" isn't ?

Or "I go to the same school as Mike's" is grammatically correct, but doesn't have the same as "Mike and I go to the same school" ?

I didn’t mean to imply that it was OK by me. I might have been inconsistent and vague in my answers. I’ll try to clear this mess up.

I go to the same school as Mike.
I go to the same school as Mike's.
I want the same car as you.
I want the same car as yours.

I said yes to #1 because it seemed passable, and I said no to #2 because for whatever reason it sounds less natural. What I should have said is that a native speaker might say any of these sentences and that they would sound natural enough in spoken English, but they are not ideal and should be avoided in writing altogether, as far as I’m concerned.

I recommend these:

I go to the same school that Mike goes to.
I want the same car that you have.

(Or your original: Mike and I go to the same school.)

I couldn't thank you enough for all the time and work you took.
