...I was deferred?

Checked my status today and turns out I'm deferred. Wasn't aware that one could be deferred this late in the game. I submitted my application in early January and I applied for CS in the school of engineering.

"Status: Deferred
Application Status
After an initial evaluation, your application has been referred for second review. A final decision will be made by the end of March. You will receive further information by mail."

To be completely honest and realistic, I'm not the ideal CS admit:
My UW GPA is around 3.3
Took only AP Stats in my junior year, currently taking AP Biology and AP Music Theory
2050 SAT, No SAT IIs
Excellent music EC's, with lots of leadership, consistent participation/dedication, awards etc.
NMSQT Commended

My questions are:
1. What exactly does this mean?
2. What should/can I do?
3. Is it unusual for OSU to eventually accept someone who is deferred, or do most people end up being rejected?
