I recently heard it can be more difficult to get interviews on the opposite coast, even at a top school. I'm in California now and I am trying to decide on which school to apply to for my last school--they are both very similar, except the school on the east coast is ranked a few slots higher. However, my goal is always to return to the California for my career after my MBA, and the other school is in California. Both schools are top 10. Will west coast companies really be significantly more unwilling to bite if I'm on the east coast? Am I going to be shooting myself in the foot for networking?

Every MBA program has recruiting events (carer treks, industry meetups) on the other coast (east b-schools on West coast and the reverse). If you know what you want you can make the move using the b-school's resources. If they don't exist or lack in some way, there's always a chance to start something new and more specific, as most of the activities are student-led.

If you are talking specifically in terms of two MBA programs- talk to students there with a similar profile as yours. Research on the 1. academic content; 2. experiential opportunities; 3. target companies visiting to do a closer comparison. If you are aiming for biotech, as your handle suggests, I think there are good opportunities and a big entrepreneurial scene both sides of the coast.
