You'd be aiming too low with those schools, but perhaps if you want to use them as insurance, you could apply. I am not sure why you think you need to wait, other than to get more WE. If you can demonstrate impact and leadership potential, and get good recommendations, you should have a shot this year at top schools, but try to get on the ball and make the R1 deadline if you can.
