    Even though I don't have complete information about Duke and Tufts, I would assume Duke has better placements. Duke places more masters into top 20 phd program than Tufts. Same logic goes for top 10 or top 30.

    Tufts is a much smaller program than Duke's program, so I'd assume that is the case for placements. If you need a working paper or a thesis, then the Tufts one might be better.

    I know there's not many students who go for a Phd(bc the cohort itself is small) but I really want to know the placement for this/last year. There is so limited information about the school......

    I don't know exactly, but it really depends on how strong your profile is. If you enter in the program with a decent program and make it to the top of the class and get top of the notch recommendations from there, I can't see why you can't enter a top 10-30 program. But if you entered in Tufts with a mediocre profile and don't do well, then well your chances are not good for a top 30 program.
