ACCELERATION PROBLEMS

1996 Toyota Celica • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 144,000 miles

I test drove a car today which was in great shape, I like the car but it seems the transmission has problems. When you are in motion and put your foot down, it seems to accelerate but it feels like a 'pulsing' acceleration. When you rev the engine when it is not in gear it seems to rev just fine. It is a 1996 Toyota Celica ST with a 1.8 and a 5-speed manual. To me this seems like a clutch but I have limited experience with manual cars, does my assessment seem correct or is there something else it could be?
