Doesn't sound like it should have dropped, but since the score they provide here is just for fun, I don't worry about it too much.  I'll be that in the next week or two it comes back up.  The scores they give here don't make a lot of sense, but it's a free site, so what can we expect?

The credit cards wont close by paying them off, but the loan would have. Sometimes if an account that could have been boosting your credit score closes, most likely your credit score could drop and sometimes drop hard.
