This is a question for anyone that's defended and finished their M.A.

I am defending my Master's thesis in a couple of weeks and I've chatted with the chair of my committee about their expectations regarding thesis format/structure. They were extremely vague and when asked if utilizing power point would be allowed, they said no. Can anyone give me some pointers, especially those those who didn't use PPT or other visual aids? I've scoured the university's webpages, looking for any formal written expectations but found nothing. I've been reading quite a bit online about the general guidelines for a successful defense and I've been keeping up with my literature, however, it definitely helps to hear from others who have gone through it already!

Thanks for your help in advance!
