So I just received the detailed information for one of my next interviews. And it stated that the dress code is casual (i.e. suits are not required). This is weird and I feel really weirded by it. I don't know what I should do, I feel like I still want to wear a suit but then don't want to be the only one who wears one and then stand out. Anybody been in a similar situation???

I agree with you that it would be weird to go for a professional job interview in anything besides a suit. I am not sure I would feel very comfortable doing that either, and being confortable with how you are dressed is essential for doing well in an interview. I think wearing the slacks and shirt from your suit (and a tie if you're a guy) without the jacket could be a reasonable compromise. I'd probably still carry the suit jacket with me, just in case. You don't have to put it on if no one else is wearing one.
