I don't really have much money and it would suck for me to fly out and take care of arrangements myself, but if it is necessary, then I've gotta do it.
Or do firms actually invite you for a CB simply by looking at your email, resume, transcript, etc.?
This is not won't necessarily be effective in the SA recruitment experience, but when I was looking for work post-undergrad/pre-law school (largely for paralegal work), I would send applications 2-3 weeks before a planned trip to a city, and then make a follow-up phone call the week before my travel. If my résumé passed their sniff test, I invariably got an interview (equivalent to a screener for SA recruitment purposes, but still a foot in the door).
