It seems unlikely, but I wouldn't mind giving them a call to find out the exact requirements. If not for Facebook IPO, then for other IPOs in the future.
I don't know these kind of details. I just know that I got the invitation in email and my friend already put an order for that (I'll pass). And this is one time deal between E-Trade and Facebook to offer 'retail IPO', nobody guarantee that E-Trade will offer something like that for future IPOs....
