How accurate is this?  I paid some small debts down and score dropped?

Re: CREDIT KARMA

As far as score goes my ck score is 619 and here it is 609 so for me  ck is fairly accurate.

CK 637

TU Fico here 702.

Only thing CK is good for is letting you know if something negative was put on your report or to check and see if something was removed.

It's a completely different formula. Naturally we don't have the details of any of the scoring formulas, but you can see the differences. For example, FICO scoring uses AAoA (Average Age of Accounts) and Credit Karma uses Average Age of OPEN accounts. That is a scoring difference. There are other differences too. Someone more knowledgeable than I am can jump in here...but as stated above, use it to track info from your report but ignore the score generated by CK.
