As broad a comparison as West Coast vs. East Coast schools will only lead to meaningless generalizations. I would suggest you sit down and write out exactly what you want to acheive by going to architecture school. What do you hope to learn? What do you want to focus on? What kind of degree do you want? Then visit both schools and talk to the teachers and the students, not just advisors or administrators. Walk through the studios. Ask to sit in on a studio or class you're interested. Don't be shy. You (or your parents, or the the gov't, or somebody) will be giving the school you choose an awful lot of money. YOU are interviewing THEM. (At least pretend that's how it is.) I did this when applying to grad school 20 years after graduating with a B.Arch. and feel much more secure about my decision. Good luck!
