What about UIUC and Hawaii and Ohio State? I think I know Ohio State and Hawaii are some of the best (my professor told me this), but what about UIUC and UC Davis?

I have never looked at UCD, Ohio State and Hawaii, but I am pretty sure UIUC has a great cosmology program, which is one of the reasons I decided to apply there this year. You may benefit from using Harvard's ADS abstract service at https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/ to look up the recent research of your potential advisors, citations statistics, etc., and choose accordingly.

Some anecdotes from my advisor, who is a cosmologist. He said that there is a lot of good cosmology at UC Davis. He also said Ohio State is broadly strong well-run department with good cosmology. He said Hawaii has been strong in cosmology in the past, but he hasn't seen much action in a while (they lost their 'best' cosmologist, I think he said). We didn't talk about UIUC unfortunately.
