I strongly advise you to embrace the wait. When this was raised as an issue before, and the devs acted on it, they dramatically reduced the criteria for an 'acceptable match'. It led to maxed out 10s being matched with squads with one 10, or a selection of 9s.
Squads with maxed out 10s are also likely to be highly organised and EVERY one of their War Party will have all of the planets unlocked and be able to take and retake any outpost at any level. That's a War winning advantage by itself.
In an ideal world we'd all like an instant match with a similar squad. In the real world we must have compromises. Embrace the wait. It's the lesser of the two evils.

You must do what you think is right, of course.
