I'm studying photography at uni and i have my end of class portfolio coming up in three weeks.

My prints are going to be 12 x 18 mounted on matte board.

First things first, i have a variety of horizontal and vertical photos, i don't know whether i should mount them all to the same size matte board and have the horizontal ones 12 x 8 (so basically put a horizontal photo in a vertical frame so to speak) or have them on the same size matte board and just have a 3 or so inch matte board hang around the entire image. The only thing im thinking is when i present the photos together the portraits will be higher then the horizontal photos.

How would you guys do it?

I would go with option 2, and figure out a way to center the landscape images with the portrait images for display (blocking under the frame .... different holders ..... something along those lines)
