Most 'college counselors' are probably not even familiar with the specifics of applying to any of the SA's, so they may provide bad advice along with the good. The process is different from a civilian college, but as mentioned above, what you need to do is well-defined and there isn't anyone with 'secret' inside info/pull, regardless of what they claim. Even if you could find someone who offers specific SA advice, you are just paying them to do what you could do for yourself. Each MOC also runs their own process to issue NOM's, so unlikely to find a counselor with specific knowledge of those individuals.
If an applicant depends on someone else during the application process, probably not a good thing to tell your BGO or MOC during their interviews. Part of the application process is having the applicant take their own initiative to get things done.
