Dress Code Instructions - Training Week

About to start a SA gig in a couple weeks; was told to wear business casual by a banker in an email blast to all interns. Would it be weird to wear the suit/tie first day of training week? Not sure if it's better to just go with the instructions?

Thanks!

reformed, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Can already tell you're going to be one of the interns that spends an unnecessary extra 20 hours in the office because he's afraid it's a trap when he's told he can go home. 

Just wear a suit with no tie. Not that hard

Also, it's training, it's just going to be HR and maybe the occasional presentation from a senior banker who is 5 levels too senior to ever give a shit about anything related to interns. As long as you aren't incredibly obnoxious, it will have no bearing on whether you get a return offer.

They said to wear business casual, show that you can follow instructions and wear business casual. Ya know, pants and a button down/up shirt. No tie, no jacket.
