What are the best colleges to double major at?

I intend to double major in communication/journalism and economics. I have done research on the schools where both of these programs are strong, but I want to know, without regard for major, what the most double-major friendly schools are.

What are the best colleges to double major at?

Basically the same Top-ranked colleges in the US with some exception. Also most of the LACs (Liberal arts colleges)

Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, CalTech, Rice, Duke, JHU, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, NYU, UChicago, Northwestern, UPenn

(One can not double major at Harvard, Princeton and only within the same college at Cornell)

MIT (only if you have 4.0 GPA for 3 terms and completed all the core requirements and complete the comm.requirement of both majors)

Seems like USC, Syracuse, Northwestern, UPenn, BU, WashU, NYU would be good for that.
