No one would be able to confirm this since no one is able to send in their same app twice; one time with a minor, and the other time without. That would be the only tangible way to gauge the difference. And even then, there could be a million other factors skewing the test. If I had to guess, a minor is very trivial and will most likely not distinguish you from other applicants. Perhaps a school will look favorably upon you if you dedicate your minor to some area that involves substantial writing or research (preferably both). But again, we are merely debating on minutiae here. Your LSAT and GPA are king, your essays can make a difference, the undergrad you attended can help, recs have a slight effect, extracurriculars and leadership count, etc. A minor is so far down the chain of importance that I wouldn't worry about it.
