I'm a Poli Sci Major and am curious if I should be tackling econ or acct courses comes this fall or is that unnecessary? Is each school different on its admission requirements or will they admit and then ask you take certain courses?

It would be a benefit for your MBA application scorecard to take them now especially given your major.
Recently attended an mbaMission presentation on Application Metrics - very informative!

Schools offer the needed courses for folks who come from different backgrounds (to "level" the play field in later classes)

Taking some courses might help you, and it might not. Schools looks for a good mix of backgrounds in the MBA programs and there are always people who do NOT have the background of econ, math, finance, management, etc. Teachers, peace corp, military, etc.
