How many chinese characters per day?

I'd like to hear from others, both more advanced and at my same level, how many chinese characters they are learning each day. Or trying to learn, at least.

    I am currently living in Chengdu, attending Si Chuan Da Xue, and our class so far averages about 100-125 characters per week. I'm starting to think this pace is just too much !  I can retain many of these new characters short-term, but the older ones fall out of the back of my head as one ones are added up front (!)

    Not looking for excuses here - I'll probably switch classes to a more moderate pace. Just looking for comparisons.

I'm using a combo of my chinese textbook (Ok, I guess) and Wenlin software to create flashcards, which I find very helpful.

thanks,

Bob
