How do I get a design job/internship without a BFA?

I'm self-taught in CS. I have a decent portfolio imho. I don't have experience with print or a proper studio environment. I don't have a great grasp of design history.

I've been sending stuff out to studios for weeks. No replies. I can't go back to waiting tables, my soul..

Ways to apply? Cold calling studios? Books to read? Terms to know? Shmooze techniques?

This sounds annoying but like.... Be really good. Practice until you're so good they can't ignore you. Work a lot of cheap freelance (credentials: full time designer, doubling my yearly salary with freelance design and animation)
