It is possible. Do you see any leaks under vehicle? Was the transmission bellhousing dry or oily when transmission was removed? Is clutch master cylinder pushrod adjusted correctly?

Check the clutch pedal travel. Ensure you have sufficient free play before the push rod engages the master cylinder. Was the flywheel surface checked for wear?
Allow the clutch to run in and avoid harsh acceleration to see if problem improves.

As to burning oil, that should be a problem with the engine and not with the clutch.
