Anyone deferred from UIUC CS or CS+X?

Hi, I was deferred from CS today. I was just wondering how many students got deferred form CS/CS + X this year.
Just want to know if this is somehow common for CS applicants due to the competitiveness.
I have an ACT of 34, TOEFL of 109(I'm an Asian), and (probably) good ECs.

    1560 SAT, 800 math, 760 reading
    UW: GPA 3.85, 4.0 w/o freshman year, W: 4.7
    Strong ECs

    Not the most APs, a mix between APs and honors.
    Strong essay.

    I'm speculating that if your academics are even a notch below perfect, your chances drop quite a bit for a major like CS.

    GPA 4.0 (UW) 4.45 (W)
    ACT 34
    EC's include sports, robotics, cyper patriots, internship

    Still playing the waiting game.
