It can be said that acceleration is not affected by the mass of the object however velocity is. If you increase the distance at which objects with the same mass are dropped, then velocity is increased. If you drop objects with different masses, the object with the greater mass with have a greater velocity.

Is that correct?

    No. If they have the same accelearation, how can they not have the same final velocity?

    finalvelocty^2=initialveloicty^2+ 2*g*height.

    where is mass in this?

    Remember Galileo's experiment. The differing masses had no affect on the time it took to fall, nor finalvelocity.

    I dropped 3 different objects and they all had the same acceleration
