75% of Duke graduates end up in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, or South.
I can't find the same number for Michigan, but the graduates do appear on the map to be pretty spread out:

Ehhh, I wouldn't want to go to Cornell over Michigan or Duke.
Edit: Also, to answer the question, I think one of the things you should look at is the markets that each provides better access to. If you think you might want to work in the South, Duke might be a better option while UM would be better for Chicago and the Midwest and maybe California. If you have ties to one of those regions, the school in the other can also give you more geographic mobility.
I certainly wasn't making the whole case about why to go to Duke. Just adding another possible reason.
