I am not taking Calculus and Vectors, will this decreases my chances of getting into Laurier BBA?

I am taking Advanced Functions and Data Management but not Calculus and Vectors. Does this decrease my chances of getting into Laurier BBA? Do they consider students who have taken Calculus over those who have not? 

(I also applied to McMaster Commerce)

You don't need calculus for Laurier bba. But you are required to take a first year calculus course called MA129, which was a review of grade 12 advanced functions and calculus. Therefore, I would recommend you take that course, as well.

I was planning to take calculus in adult day school during the summer,  and Data during semester 2 just so my average is about the cutoff, but I wasn't sure if I would be looked down upon by admissions

I'm doing Laurier BBA and I didn't take calculus in high school, still ended with an A though. The required calculus course is ridiculously easy. You'll be fine.
