Mentioned in class it was said that we should not always expect the same enthalpy for reactions since pressure and because products and reactions can be in different states. For clarification, does this apply to both the forward and reverse reaction?

Yes, it does apply to both forward and reverse reactions.

This forum post helps to flesh out why enthalpies vary depending of the method of calculation you use:
