US Law school wasn't something I was considering at the time, so I told my existing school that I was leaving and only wanted to take 2 classes which were interesting to me. They didn't have a 'withdraw' procedure, so I got a non-punitive incomplete for 5/7 classes second semester. I left with an A-avg on my GPA, and spent my time studying language, traveling, etc. I was on a scholarship and thus didn't care about the tuition.
Fast-forward, and I've decided to apply for a JD after taking some time to work, because I'd like to move to the US and practice there. I've read that US law schools don't care much about international transcripts, since they don't affect their rankings. Given that I have an A-avg listed for my first year of university and have an 'above-average' evaluation, should I write an addendum about the non-punitive incompletes (potentially drawing attention to them), or leave it?

If you're worried the pattern of dropping a bunch of classes and then transferring will look weird, you can drop a sentence in your personal statement about why you transferred.
